Animal Welfare

The term ‘animal welfare’ can mean different things to different people.

Animal welfare, as a term, covers a range of states that an animal can find itself in. It is generally agreed that animal welfare is a continuum and refers to a state within an individual animal which reflects the sum of its sensations and emotions at a given point in time.  Animal welfare can therefore be great, good, satisfactory, poor or extremely poor.  An individual animal can have poor welfare in some aspect of its life and great welfare in another aspect of its life.
