Abstract or Summary
  • Physicians and veterinarians arguably uphold the same ethical principles and responsibilities for their patients in general practice. Both professionals swear to, and practice their respective oaths of non-malfeasance (to do no harm) and beneficence (to alleviate patient from suffering and promote patient welfare). Despite these similar practices, different outcomes are often observed during end-of-life treatment. Using the Moral Deliberation Process, three case studies are selected and analyzed to demonstrate several common distinctions between human and veterinary medicine. These distinctions demonstrate the importance of biomedical ethics in daily practice; and authenticate the warrant for further research to be performed in order to improve the current comprehension of how to implement ethical reasoning into the medical fields.
