Veterinary students face several ethical challenges during their curriculum. Distinguishing students´ own views on animal ethics and how it develops over time may help veterinarians to cope with difficult situations. According to an article published in this journal, "veterinary education appeared to influence students´ animal ethical views only to a small degree". "Their animal ethics is clearly dominated by a utilitarian view, from the beginning of their studies to the end, at least in Finland", says Professor Anna Valros, from the University of Helsinki (UH). "However, education clearly increases students´ knowledge of animal capacities for pain perception", continues Dr Laura Hänninen, from UH. These results enable better planning of educational activities, to ensure that the students gain a good understanding of the potential variety of ethical views they will encounter as future professionals.
