Bioethics is a term that comes from human medical practice that describes the ethical challenges in medicine. For example, who makes decisions for a patient in human medicine can be an ethical challenge. In any medicine, however, a medical surrogate needs to make a decision in the best interest of the patient, whether human or horse.

In this podcast we discuss:

  • Types of ethical challenges equine veterinarians might face
  • Examples of ethical challenges from inside the practice and with clients
  • Planning ahead for ethical challenges
  • Facing ethical challenges
