ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the regulations of Great Britain's Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) on animal welfare and veterinary welfare. It presents the 24-hour emergency coverage for animal care wherein the RCVS suggests that animals too need 24/7 care. According to the survey conducted by RCVS, more veterinary practitioners work outside the Working Time Regulations (WTRs), and the British Veterinary Association (BVA) is already doing their job to clarify the issue.
