Austria backs pet owning and animal welfare

The special unit presented its services at the Trixie house fair.

A special unit established by the Austrian government with responsibility for species-appropriate pet owning and animal welfare is offering independent certification of products for keeping livestock and pets. The products are assessed on the basis of the Austrian animal welfare regulations, scientific knowledge and practice, comparison with similar products and inspection and testing of the products.

"Products that carry our animal welfare mark provide a clear animal welfare signal," stated Dr Martina Dörflinger, speaking to PET worldwide at the Trixie house fair last weekend. Certified products are published on the unit's website.
