Summary This book is drawn from articles originally published in the Journal of Animal Ethics (JAE). Essays in the first section discuss aspects of veterinary oaths, how advances in animal cognition science factor into current ethical debates, and the rise of complementary and alternative veterinary medicine and its relationship to traditional veterinary medicine. The second section continues with an essay that addresses why veterinarians have an obligation to educate animal caregivers to look past 'cuteness' in order to treat all animals with dignity. The collection closes with three short sections focusing on animals in farming, trade, and research "areas where veterinarians encounter conflicts between their job and their duty to advocate and care for animals.
