A NEW series in In Practice gives readers the opportunity to consider and contribute to the discussion of some of the ethical dilemmas that can arise in veterinary practice. Each month, a case scenario will be presented, followed by discussion of some of the issues involved. In addition, a possible way forward will be suggested; however, there is rarely a cut-and-dried answer in such cases, and readers may wish to suggest an alternative approach. Readers who wish to contribute to the discussion of this month's dilemma - on the celebrity downer cow - are invited to do so and should send their comments as soon as possible, so that they can be considered for publication in the next issue. The series is being coordinated by Siobhan Mullan, of the University of Bristol, who holds the RCVS diploma in animal welfare science, ethics and law. It is hoped that it will provide a framework that will help practices find solutions when facing similar dilemmas.
