 The animal advocates

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the interplay of expertise and advocacy in animal welfare policy-making: does expertise lead automatically to advocacy? Does advocacy require expertise? Should there be a special advocacy or accountability role for veterinarians that goes beyond doctoring the animals? As veterinarians, protectionists, and research advocates debated these questions with the USDA regulations writers, the animals themselves and controversial questions of who knew what was best for them were often lost in the cross fire.

Keywords: animal advocacy; expertise; veterinarians; animal welfare policy; USDA
