"Protecting the Veterinary Profession, Clients, and Patients Through
Using Canine Devocalization and Intracardiac Euthanasia as Case Examples

Dean M. Snyder, DVM, PE, NYSVMS
Tom Gosdeck, Esq., Principal, Hill, Gosdeck & McGraw, NYSVMS Legislative Representative

Dr. Snyder and Mr. Gosdeck will present an overview of how laws are formed and discuss a variety of laws that have been of recent interest to the veterinary community. They will then walk the group through specific laws that could limit a veterinarian's ability to practice and discuss the varying opinions from both the veterinarians and the public and how those opinions affect the legislative process.

This lecture will be the third installment of AAHA's Law and Ethics Series. The purpose of this series is to provide veterinarians and professionals with a basic background in ethics and law as these subjects pertain to veterinary medicine and research. Every veterinarian will at some point in his or her career be faced with an ethical dilemma. By forcing ourselves to reflect upon our personal opinions, determine their roots, and challenge whether they make sense given our profession and relationship with society, we can be more prepared to face these issues when they arise.
