Teng KT.

Animal welfare epidemiology is a rapidly growing area in veterinary science. Epidemiology offers the methodology to quantify the welfare impact of individual diseases on the animals, compare the impact among different diseases and facilitate disease prioritisation. Animal welfare science extends the focus of veterinary epidemiology − animal health – to a broader sense of animal well-being. The concept of animal welfare epidemiology is then demonstrated by the epidemiological studies on the impact of feline obesity on the survival and health in cats, follow by Welfare-Adjusted Life Year (WALY), a novel metric that allows the estimation of total disease impact by considering both welfare compromise and premature death.
