Read about our vet’s opinion about the interview here
“If a dangerous dog were to cause life threatening injuries, or even death, to a child, their owner or a member of the public, the vet who had refused to euthanise the animal would be considered partly responsible for these consequences,” said Dr Gemma Hepner, a senior veterinary surgeon at the Animal Practice Veterinary Clinic and Surgery
Dr Kevin Polglaze, chief veterinary surgeon at the Animal Practice Veterinary Clinic and Surgery, said vets like and respect animals, work long hours with disrupted rest, and earn less far less than doctors and dentists.
“Public abuse is all it takes to trip a vet to leave the profession, and in some cases take their life,” he said.
