Dr. Melanie Barham talks with Dr. Cindy McMann and Jacinta Cassidy from Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis about the signs of abuse that a veterinarian might notice when treating a family’s pets, and approaches that a veterinarian can employ to help when they become aware of .an abusive situation, whether with women, men, or children, and some of the relationship between animal abuse and abuse in relationships.

Dr. McMann also discusses a program they are developing that finds temporary emergency boarding and care for the animals of women that need to enter the domestic violence shelter. Many women in violent situations will delay or avoid leaving the situation due to not being able to find care for their pets
