Record of a panel discussion on ”Euthanasia”
The basic for the discussion was the Report of the AVMA Panel on Euthanasia (Ref. 1) and the introduction given by Dr Krister Iwarsson, Huddinge, Sweden. During this introduction, reference was also given to a monograph on “animal anaesthesia” by Colin J. Green (Ref. 2) in which euthanasia is defined as “the killing of an animal with a minimum of physical and mental suffering”.
