Republic Act 9268 16. b Although some animals may sometimes have interests beyond freedom from pain or discomfort, the capacity of an animal to experience what we would call unpleasant or negative psychological states remains a crucial factor in determining the nature and weight of its interests. Amount and duration, however, are not the only factors. Certain negative psychological states carry extra weight. Tannenbaum, page 123. 17. b Section 32. e. Office Door Lettering and Signs. The use of door lettering should be limited to 1/5 of the size of the door and shall show only the name of the veterinarian. Window or building signs above the first floor shall show the name of veterinarian and the term veterinarian only and the letter shall be no bigger than 16 cms. in size. PVMA Code of Ethics 18. d Section 8. Emergency Service. A veterinarian when consulted in an emergency by the client of another, shall attend only to the conditions leading to the emergency. Upon completion of the treatment, the patient must be referred back to the attending veterinarian. However, if the client refuses to go back and decides to stay, the veterinarian who attended the emergency case may accept the case. The following conditions should be present: (a) Findings and discussions with the client shall be handled in such a confidential manner as to avoid criticism of the attending veterinarian and; (b) In making emergency calls upon a patient already under treatment, it is unethical to institute radical changes in the treatment previously prescribed in such a way as to attract unusual attention. PVMA Code of Ethics 19. a Teleology is used in association with such theories as consequentialism and utilitarianism. Consequentialism regards the results of an action as a definitive factor of its moral worth. In utilitarianism the maximization of happiness was to be the determinant in any situation which appear to raise moral issues.
