Animal Protection

The animals must be treated well and no undue distress may be caused to them. Supervising veterinarian advises the owners on improvement of animal welfare and monitors regularly activity subject to notification.  

If you suspect the Animal Welfare Act to be violated, or are concerned over the welfare of an animal, you can contact the supervising veterinarian by phone, email or letter. A notification may be submitted also anonymously. 

You can always ask the supervising veterinarian advice on animal welfare. The discussions are always confidential. 

In urgent cases, a notification of animal welfare violation can be submitted to the on-call veterinarian or police.
