Faculty of Veterinary Medicine: “Animal health should be included in our public policies”

meeting with fellow lawyer Diego Gallegos Chilean Veterinary CollegeThe professional emphasized that:There is no concept of animal cemetery in the legislation”, This means that a phenomenon that manifests itself in different parts of the country today cannot find an adequate expression.”

As for options, the lawyer explained that “it is illegal to bury animals on public roads” and that doing so “causes an accident”. can be a source of infection and vector of different diseases for humansthey can contaminate the water, they can be extracted from the soil and they can contaminate animals… it is illegal”.

“It is legal, if not ideal, for this animal to be buried on your property. If you’re lucky enough to have a garden, you can bury it there. However, it is not so recommended because causes the same health risks that we just talked about‘, pointed to the Colmevet representative.

Actually, in 2017, They released a protocol from SAG to perform these pet burials.

In any event, the establishment states that what is recommended for the disposal of a pet’s body is “this they go to crematoriums, cremation of dead animals, although there is no specific regulation a much safer and more convenient measure to honor members of our family who have passed away“.

Likewise, Gallegos spoke of a long-standing struggle Colmevet had had. “We understand that public policy regarding all animals must go through an approach called One Health, and we are tired of repeating something that seems so obvious. animal, human and environmental health are interrelated” and should be included in our public policies according to the organisation.

Biologically, there is not much difference between the human body and the body of another animal. When we die, the sanitary waste looks the same. That’s why people bury themselves by certain rules, and the same rules, with some nuances, can be applied to other biological bodies, such as those of animals,” explains the lawyer.

Instead of the current regulation of animal cemeteries accepting only human bodies, accepting animal corpses, “We are all animals, we are humans,” he said.

“There’s no reason not to but there seems to be some kind of bottleneck with the fact that we’re animals too,” Gallegos said.

Finally, the lawyer came to the following conclusion:There are policies that also apply to sanitary and environmental issues, and this is one of them… There is a question of adding the line ‘and other animals’ or ‘animals’ to the cemeteries regulation that exists today, and that’s it”.
