Abstract

Being presented with a seriously injured animal can be stressful at any time; when they have no owner this can create additional complications. As well as providing appropriate treatment, it is important to be able to navigate through the relevant laws and RCVS advice in order to maximise animal welfare, make best use of any funds available and avoid unnecessary stress. In this presentation Caroline Allen, Chief Vet of the RSPCA, provides this useful information and more, so that you can approach these cases with confidence. An understanding of where charities can help, and where they can’t, is also important to avoid frustration and misunderstandings. The role of the RSPCA in these situations is often misunderstood; using case studies, the presentation explores where the responsibilities lie and the role of the RSPCA. This presentation will be useful to anyone in practice who might be presented with an unowned, injured animal and be worried about what to do.
