Robert Hubrecht BSc PhD CBiol FIBiol is Deputy Scientific Director of the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW). James Kirkwood BVSc PhD CBiol FIBiol MRCVS is Chief Executive and Scientific Director of UFAW. UFAW is an internationally recognised, independent, scientific and educational animal welfare charity concerned with improving knowledge and understanding of animals' needs in order to promote high standards of welfare for farm, companion, laboratory, captive wild animals and those with which we interact in the wild.
"In summary, this is a must-have book for those working with research animals. However, it is much more than that: the principles of thoughtful use and care of animals are widely applicable to other veterinary relationships too, whether pet, farm or zoo animals. I recommend it to vets, nurses and students with an interest in and concern for the ethical use of all non-human animals." (The Veterinary Record, January 2011) "And this perfect balance between theory and practice continues throughout the volume both in the broad introductory chapters and the species-specific sections. In summary this is an excellent addition to UFAW's seminal collection of animal welfare texts." (Veterinary Practice, November 2010)
