    Animal genetic engineering has existed for thousands of years in the form of selective breeding. People have chosen desirable characteristics for appearance, survival traits, and other qualities in animals they wish to obtain in future offspring.   The genetic engineering in animals has increased significantly in recent years, and the use of this technology brings with it ethical issues, some of which relate to animal welfare. Biomedical applications of genetically engineered animals are numerous, and include understanding of gene function, modeling of human disease to either understand.

    The book deals with farm animals, pets, wild animals and laboratory animals and dicusses their environmental requirements, fear and stress, their response to pain, injury, disease and death, behaviour and aggression, and the implications of biotechnology and genetic engineering. Finally, the book tries to reconcile reverence for life with the Format: Paperback.

Genetic engineering biotechnology to increase the productivity of farm animals (growth rates, milk or egg yield, etc.) will increase the severity and incidence of animal suffering.

Genetic engineering of animals: Ethical issues, including welfare concerns Article (PDF Available) in The Canadian veterinary journal. La revue veterinaire canadienne 52(5) May with. Developments in biotechnology have raised new concerns about animal welfare, as farm animals now have their genomes modified (genetically engineered) or copied (cloned) to propagate certain traits useful to agribusiness, such as meat yield or feed conversion.

These animals suffer from unusually high rates of birth defects, disabilities, and premature death. Most ethical evaluations in this area have considered the broader field of biotechnology rather than just genetic engineering. Two particularly systematic evaluations may illustrate this: a workshop on ‘Biotechnology and Animal Welfare’ financed by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)71 and a committee set up by the UK government to.

The genetic engineering of animals has increased significantly in recent years, and the use of this technology brings with it ethical issues, some of which relate to animal welfare — defined by the World Organisation for Animal Health as “the state of the animal how an animal is coping with the conditions in which it lives” ().These issues need to be considered by all stakeholders Cited by: So long as an living organism is in some ways "man-altered," through genetic engineering, not cross-breeding, then the novel requirement is easily fulfilled.

Transgenic animals and genetic engineering technology, generally, are considered to have utility and the means with which genetic manipulation occurs is typically non-obvious. While genetic engineering in livestock opens a huge range of possibilities, it also brings about concerns of safety and justification: does genetic engineering affect animal welfare.

Is it safe and morally acceptable to apply genetic engineering to farm. Genetic engineering is a process that alters the genetic structure of an organism by either removing or introducing traditional animal and plant breeding, which involves doing multiple crosses and then selecting for the organism with the desired phenotype, genetic engineering takes the gene directly from one organism and delivers it to the other.

The science of genetic engineering now makes it possible to delete genes or swap genes between species. People concerned with animal welfare have stated that a major difference between conventional selective breeding and genetic engineering is that the process of selection is greatly sped up (Fox,; Grandin, ; Rollin, ).

But the ethics of genetic engineering is not reducible to a risk-benefit assessment, for issues of equity, control of the research agenda, and the possible misuse of the technology come into play, as do ethical concerns about human eugenics and enhancement, animal welfare, undermining the sanctity of nature, and playing God.

{\textcopyright} ". The effects of genetic engineering on animal health and welfare are of significant public concern (Mench, ). Ideas about animal welfare are shaped by cultural attitudes toward animals (Burghart and Herzog, ), and animal welfare has proven difficult to assess because it is so multifaceted and involves ethical judgments (Mason and Mendl, ; Fraser, ).

The Routledge Handbook of Animal Ethics is composed of 44 chapters, all appearing in print here for the first time, and organized into the following six sections: I. Thinking About Animals. Animal Agriculture and Hunting. III. Animal Research and Genetic Engineering. Companion Animals.
