Animal Sentience
First-Ever Scientific Journal Focusing on Nonhuman Animal Feeling

January 22, 2016

HSVMA members are invited to access and contribute to a new online journal, Animal Sentience: An Interdisciplinary Journal on Animal Feeling, which features the first-ever collection of articles with empirical findings on what, when and how nonhuman animals feel.

The inaugural issue, published online this month, includes articles on whether animals mourn, pain in fish, the veterinarian’s duty to report animal abuse, and how welfare biology and commonsense may help to reduce animal suffering.
