However, this does not mean that the veterinary professional does not have a responsibility as well. A veterinary professional has a responsibility to the animal, even if this involves working on as well as working with the owner. Unfortunately, each veterinary professional’s animal welfare account is partly based on the animal welfare accounts of their clients. 2 Owners and the Law How much veterinary professionals can achieve, and therefore for how much we can be responsible, depends on the circumstances.

Science cannot prove or disprove animals’ feelings. We can ­egomorphically compare animal’s and our own context, biology and responses. We must consider relevant me–other differences, by considering deeper similarities. Pathologies are important causes of unpleasant feelings. Death avoids good and bad ­feelings. Veterinary professionals have a duty to consider other causes of feelings. ­Veterinary professionals can cause iatrogenic harms or perpetuate welfare problems for non-­patient animals. Selected further reading Further information on the history of the veterinary profession is provided by Dunlop and Williams (1996), Hatschbach (2006) and Swabe (1999), and the ­specific implications of the increased small animal work are discussed by Brown and Silverman (1999).

This common-sense approach is especially fortunate given that people cannot observe each others’ emotions, but few scientists argued that other people should ignore scientists’ welfare. So how can we read other minds? Effectively, we must infer animals’ feelings by comparing oneself (“I”) and other animals (“them”). As an individual, I look at my feelings in certain situations and then compare other animals to myself. Where there are similarities, I infer that those animals have similar feelings.
