Resource Description

The five freedoms for animals, also known as Brambell’s five freedoms, are a compact of rights for animals under human care. The five freedoms are used as the basis for the actions of professional groups, including vets, and have been adopted by representative groups internationally including the World Organisation for Animal Health. What are the Five Freedoms for Animals? 1) Freedom from hunger or thirst by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigour. 2) Freedom from discomfort by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area. 3) Freedom from pain, injury or disease by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment. 4) Freedom to express normal behaviour by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind. 5) Freedom from fear and distress by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.
