Reports show that cases of domestic abuse have risen to shocking new levels since the first UK-wide lockdown in March 2020.Due to popular demand, we’ve reconvened our expert panel 6 months on from our last roundtable on this issue to explore the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 on domestic abuse, the role pets and other animals can play in abusive homes and how veterinary professionals can fulfil their role in recognising and acting on signs of non-accidental injuries, while providing current emergency-only veterinary services. Our group of experts will provide practical guidance and advice for veterinary teams by discussing a range of scenarios and answering questions live.
