Fesvet sends its contributions to the Ley de Bienestar Animal

The State Federation of Veterinary Syndicates (Fesvet) compares with the General Directorate of Animal Rights the need for establishment in a national normative market that is objectively related to the tenancy and conviction responsible for animals, civism by its defense and the lucha the abandonment and maltreatment, the impulse of its adoption, the training and information on animal protection matters and the need for identification and the protection of animals, without regard to all are part of the Public Health Veterinary, and must be integrated, as long as the General Directorate, in the Ministry of Health.

This point of view is at a stage when citizens, organizations and associations have been established to express their views on the aspects related to the Ley de Bienestar Animal Relationship, led by the Second Vice-Presidency, Ministry of Social Affairs hacerle llegar las following statements that continue to reproduce integrally.

“With the aim of improving the development of Ley de Bienestar Animal, from FESVET, we will take the following considerations:



The protection and welfare of animals is a sustainable part of Public Health, specifically the Public Health Veterinary (Art. 8.2 of Ley 14/86, of 25 April, Generaal de Sanidad), and these aspects are directly related to the elevation of “Of the giants in the hombre debidos a la vida animal y sus enfermedades”.


This is a way of being indistinguishable Extensively demonstrated by the bibliography with respect to the large number of decades, there is a lack of adequate care (such as maintenance such as prophylaxis and medical treatment), the failure to bienstar or the maltreatment, and the irresponsible tenure, incidence directly in the appearance or elevation of risks for public health. All those aspects which adversely affect the domestic animal production directly or indirectly increase the risk of public health, and increase the full competence of the veterinary faculties (Art. 6.2.d. Ley 44/2003, of 21 November, of Ordenación de las Profesiones Sanitarias), tanto de las administrations administrations como de la pr Practice en todas sus ramas.

The poor physical, physiological, health and psychological state of domestic animals, such as company as production, directly affects the appearance and increase of the incidence of all types of risks for the health in the medium ambient derivatives of the conviviality of animals and persons.

Loose sometimes animals in poor psychological conditions or physiologists suffer from chronic stress processes or aguno that bajan his defenses and hacen that desarrollen latent diseases actually aggravate or seriouss which, in a high percentage, can directly affect the health of the population, or indirectly contaminate the medium and cause about the health of the human being and other species or domestic species. Además, many of these animals, on top of all exotic types, are asymptomatic carriers of pathogenic agents for the male and other species, which is released in the medium by heces, orina u other secretions, and which increases its presence in the environment when these animals are sometimes a treaty directly or directly a maltrato. These situations of public health are amplified by extraordinary manners when, together with these situations of mental stress or physical malpractice, have an unresponsive tenacity and manner of being, for example, in the case of oral prophylaxis. direct pathological processes that are not adequately handled by the veterinarian.

Only veterinary sanitation, training and competencies can adequately define the state of physical and psychological health of domestic animals, as well as how to assess how well this state exists in the maintenance of the health of its owner or two, of the family group in which the convive, or of the health of the general population; es decir, of public health in general.


This is a key issue that animal protection is a nuclear part of prevention and protection in public health is visualized at European level in the European Commission’s Competence Organization, the control of the animal welfare state has been in place for a long time and has been under the control and control of the Commissioner for Health of the European Union.


It seems logical, therefore, that this Ley de Bienestar Animal Bill is published by the Ministry of Health and not since the Ministry of Social Rights and Agenda 2030, as it seems logical to think that the General Directorate of Bienestar Animal Habria should also include organically in the Ministry of Health. The animal animal should be a principal contributor to the public health systems, with implications for perception and social awareness that are very important, but secondary, and that should be supported in the main sanitary or nuclear aspect, and have not been reviewed.



What changes the description of the General Directorate of Bienestar Animal in a manner that depends organically on the Ministry of Health, in parallelism and connection to its dependence on the Health Commissioner, and on its nuclear importance in Public Health.


That in coherence to the support at the PRIMARY point, publishes the Bill and then definitively the Ley, from the Ministry of Health and no since the Social Rights and Agenda 2030.


Recognizes the main paper of the Public Health Veterinary (Art. 8.2 of Ley 14/86, of 25 April, General de Sanidad), both in the public interest as private, in the vigilance and control of the aspects related to the welfare of animals ”.
