Date:2/27/2013

y diverse panel on the euthanasia of animals ever assembled. As a result, the latest update of our euthanasia guidelines offers much more depth and breadth of expertise in the affected species and the environments in which euthanasia is performed. Panel members take their responsibility extremely seriously because we recognize the AVMA Guidelines are used by everyone from veterinarians in private practice, to caretakers on farms and researchers in biomedical facilities, to law enforcement, to governmental regulators."

The first edition of the AVMA's highly respected, authoritative euthanasia guidelines was issued in 1963. With each update, the guidelines have reflected knowledge gained through advancements in research and practical experience. New in the 2013 edition are:

  • Euthanasia methods for invertebrates and other lower-order species;
  • Advice on humane handling of animals before and during euthanasia;
  • Information on collection of animals for scientific investigations, handling injured wild animals, and removal of animals causing property damage or threatening human safety;
  • Additional information about confirmation of death and disposal of animal remains; and
  • Flowcharts, illustrations, tables and appendices that clarify recommendations.

The AVMA, founded in 1863, is one of the oldest and largest veterinary medical organizations in the world with more than 84,000 member veterinarians worldwide engaged in a wide variety of professional activities.
