Scotland ‘leading the pack’ on animal welfare, says BVA

British Veterinary Association (BVA) president John Fishwick praised Scotland for implementing policies that prioritise keeping animals happy, healthy and safe during his speech at BVA’s annual Scottish Dinner on Tuesday 15 May.

Addressing almost 100 guests at the Scottish Parliament, including the Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Roseanna Cunningham MSP, parliamentarians, key representatives from animal health and welfare organisations, and colleagues from across the veterinary profession, the BVA President said: “Scotland has really led the way on developing policies that keep animal health and welfare front and centre over the past year, and it’s been especially heartening when this has also prompted movement and debate on crucial pieces of legislation across the rest of the UK.
