Surveying veterinarians on ethical dilemmas and moral distress within veterinary practice

Author(s): Punit Jhandai, Deepak Soni, Radha Rani and Pooja
Abstract: Growing apprehensions regarding ethical dilemmas, moral distress, and burnout within veterinary practice are on the rise. Despite this, the fundamental origins of these issues have not been thoroughly investigated. There is a lack of research examining the prevalence of moral distress among Indian veterinarians or its implications for career longevity and overall well-being. The majority of participants expressed conflict regarding determining appropriate care to administer. Over 88% of respondents indicated that the challenges hindering them from delivering suitable care caused either moderate or severe distress to themselves or their staff. Seventy-three percent of participants reported being requested to administer care they deemed futile. Ethical discord leading to moral distress could serve as a significant contributor to stress and diminished well-being, a factor that may not be widely acknowledged or clearly defined.
