Frankfort, Ky.

-- Kentucky veterinarians currently prevented from reporting abuse of a client’s animals may have new freedoms under a proposed law under consideration by the state legislature.

House Bill 238 would allow veterinarians the same rights as citizens by allowing them to report suspected animal abuse. Veterinarians in Kentucky have been prevented from reporting animal abuses because of client confidentiality requirements. Also included in the bill is the abolishment of a clause that shields veterinarians who report abuse from lawsuits and criminal prosecution, according to legislation.

The bill was passed by the House and is under consideration by the state Senate.
