To name one here is one called Zoonoses it’s a disease that can be transmitted from wild and domestic animals to humans and it’s a public health threat worldwide. Because these diseases come from animals, prevention and control strategies needs to be required to combine efforts of many fields. For example, they need to have different veterinarians and physical and public health professionals in 3 areas to see the individual’s heath, population health and comparative medicine research. In the Individual health setting, to do an assessing the potential for zoonotic disease transmission from animals to humans should include input from both physicians and veterinarians and the patient could be at high risk. So, they need to observe them.
After a long time of thinking, she finally found Darwin. This evidence supports the idea that dogs do actually think. It also tells us that dogs do think because Chaser had to think to find Darwin. Jack London also made dogs think in The Call of the Wild too. One example was when Spitz was about to fight Buck.
Introduction: The Animal Ethics Committee (AEC) has developed a Code of Ethical Conduct that complies with requirements laid down by the Animal welfare act 1999 (New Zealand legislation website) including sections 80 and 100 of the Act, which set out the purposes of the regulatory system for the use of animals in science, the promotion of the three R’s (Reduction, Replacement and Refinement), and the criteria for decision-making. This Code was approved by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI). The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1986 requires that institutions conducting research using animals comply with the Australian Code of Practice for the Care and Use of Animals for Scientific Purposes 2004 (the Code) and nominate an Animal Ethics
Should Animal Testing for Medication Be Banned? Animal testing is an experiment which is carried out on animals or simply using animal as experimental object. It is sometimes referred as animal research or animal experimentation. Animal testing is used to assess the safety and effectiveness of everything from medication to cosmetics, as well as understanding how the human body works. This kind of experiment has been conducted long time ago by some scientists such as Aristoteles, Herophilus, and Erasistratus which performed the experiments to discover the functions of living organisms and is used until now.
After researching the career of a veterinarian, I have decided to pursue this career. Veterinarians have many responsibilities. They examine and treat health or hurt animals. To start, veterinarians give animals shots to prevent diseases and give the animals surgery or put the animal to sleep. Also, veterinarians test drugs and surgical on animals and inspect and test the animals for diseases.
Zoos have been around since the eighteenth century. A zoo is defined as a compound where wild animals are kept for viewing and studying. The purpose of a zoo is mainly for education and protection, preserving animal species that are either at a risk of becoming extinct or for increased collection size (Jamieson). Animals from around the world have been enclosed in an area where we can admire and study these fine creatures. However, many modern zoos around the world have introduced animal shows, petting and feeding sessions to attract more visitors in order to earn more money.
In the essay “The Moral Status of Animals”, published in 2006, Martha C. Nussbaum reflects the aspect of dignity and comments on the dignified existence of both human and nonhuman beings. Throughout her essay, Nussbaum draws parallels between classical doctrines and the treatment of nonhuman beings among other things on the example of a trial in India, which examined the “undignified” treatment and living conditions of circus animals. Although scientists still puzzle over the extent of a nonhuman beings ' morality, Nussbaum argues in her essay that animals should be entitled to a dignified existence as well as humans, because every living being has specific forms of “flourishing” and deserves to unfold its opportunities in life. Under consideration of Kantian’s, Rachels’s and Bentham’s theories, which differentiate in several points, Nussbaum examines the animals’ moral capabilities. She disagrees with Kant’s statement about the
Three possible careers in the field of Laboratory science that I am interested in are lab animal technologist, veterinary pathologist, and lab animal veterinarian. I researched these careers as I did not know much about them and they all have animal caretaking in them. I know that I want to work hands on with animals as just being around them brings me joy. I also know that helping them get better or being able to prevent unnecessary harm to any animal would make my job more than worth doing. Doing research on these careers has made me broaden my mind a bit more to all the possible jobs I can do in my like.
