Whatever form the assessment takes, it would seem important to support clinicians in facilitating carers to find solutions to improve welfare Step 7 and to evaluate the whole process Step 8. Companion animal quality-of-life assessment tools suitable for use in a veterinary clinic have been developed for a variety of purposes, such as to screen for issues suitable to target for welfare improvement, to evaluate interventions in a group of animals, or to monitor individual patients.
That quality-of-life assessment tools have been so widely developed for use in humans around the world signals to us that a broad formal assessment of welfare and patient outcomes is likely to be beneficial. We need further research in this area to develop and evaluate new tools.
We also need clinicians to embrace the concept of quality-of-life assessment and pioneer the implementation of such assessments within their clinics as another tool in the box aimed at achieving the ultimate goal of veterinary practice — improving the welfare of animals. The author thanks David Main for his stimulating discussions about quality of life of animals and his constructive comments on the manuscript.
