This oath is sworn by vets, as they join the profession:
I PROMISE above all that I will pursue the work of my profession with uprightness of conduct and that my constant endeavour will be to ensure the welfare of the animals committed to my care.
This means that, in any apparent conflict of interest, in situations involving animals, the vet should decide in favour of the animal.
For us at the AVMC, it is difficult to comprehend the close association with laboratory animal experimentation in the case of some vets and the support of that practice by many others, in the light of this simple oath.
