Freedom from hunger or thirst by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigor;

Freedom from discomfort by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area;

Freedom from pain, injury or disease by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment;

Freedom to express normal behavior by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind; and

Freedom from fear and distress by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.
