i am doing an assignment and i have been asked to evaluate the differences between criminal and civil law and their roles in a veterinary practice.i am being asked to write two examples that may arise in a veterinary practice and state whether criminal or civil law would be appropriate for the scenario. i have researched and found info on civil law in a veterinary practice which is things like malpractice and negligence and i have written a scenario for civil law, but it is veterinary criminal law i am stuck on.
yes i think that is what i am trying to say, for civil law i have written malpractice, for example misdiagnosing a dogs illness or injury incompetently and negligence, failing to turn over a dogs body to a funeral organisation for example, but it is criminal veterinary law i need info on. yes to how vets criminally break/offend the law,
yes those type of things i have stubbled upon during research but ur answer has clarified what i am looking for thank u, i will research tail docking, ear cropping and mutilation . would this also include things like a vet euthanising an animal without consent of a known owner ? A vet stealing prescribed drugs from the medicines cabinet? A vet going onto a property and taking an animal without consent? i am trying to think of a great scenario.
so scenario wise, if a veterinary surgeon say hit a dog for continuous barking, it is a criminal offence as this is unnecessary harm? and if a person wanted their dog to have its tail docked and the vet performed the surgery it would be a criminal offence ? am i on the right track?
thank u, i think if i research on what u have mentioned i will be ok now. u have helped very much and i understand a bit more now. i will recommend u. have a lovely easter x
