Guidelines on Welfare and Ethics

Prior to acceptance of a manuscript, the authors must certify that all relevant legal and ethical requirements have been met with regards to the humane treatment of animals described in the study. Where required, the author(s) must specify in the Materials and Methods the ethical review committee approval process and the international, national, and/or institutional guidelines followed. For studies using client owned animals, the methods must demonstrate a high standard (best practice) of veterinary care and include informed client consent.  Manuscripts and authors that fail to meet these requirements and studies that involve unnecessary pain, distress, suffering, or lasting harm to animals will not be considered for review. The reviewer(s) retains the right to reject scientific abstracts, posters or grant proposals on the basis of any of the above welfare, legal, ethical or clinical concerns; in case of doubt prior to submission authors should contact the ECVS office and their query will be forwarded to the appropriate person.
