What steps is the Welsh Government taking to work with local authorities and police to safeguard the wellbeing of vets who have and are putting down XL Bully dogs?

Answered by Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd | Answered on 18/01/2024

Vets may be requested by current XL Bully owners to euthanise their dog. Vets can refer to the RCVS Code of Conduct with regard to their professional responsibilities in carrying out euthanasia and seek advice from RCVS and/or the Veterinary Defence Society regarding any queries about their professional obligations.
