Veterinarians are often the first professionals to see an animal victim of family/domestic violence. It is essential that veterinarians know what to do if they suspected animal maltreatment.
This booklet has been created for vets and their staff and goes into detail about the issues associated with family/domestic violence and animal abuse.
There is more information in the veterinarians’ section in resources.
If you work with animals and are based in Victoria and would like training for your organisation, please get in touch with Eastern Domestic Violence Outreach Service (EDVOS) for their Animals’ 3R’s training. (Free) email@example.com. We are hoping this will be available to other states in the not too distant future. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest in this training if you are outside Victoria. Animal-3Rs Info Sheet_online training_general
