FVE welcomes EP Report on Responsible Ownership and Care of Horses

FVE and FEEVA very much welcomes the Report on responsible ownership and care of equines (2016/2078(INI)) by the European Parliament Mrs. Girling

FVE and FEEVA suggests some small additions for improvement:
- to recognise the longevity, costs and responsibilities of horse ownership
- to acknowledge the need for equine health care
- to recognise that infectious diseases can give significant health and welfare concerns
- to recognise the lack of veterinary medicines for equines
- to ensure that welfare of animals destined for slaughter for human consumption in third countries is guaranteed
