Animal health and welfare complaints

We deal with complaints related to the health and welfare of livestock:

  • On farms
  • In livestock markets
  • Abattoirs
  • In transit

We can often resolve consumer complaints without having to involve the individual or business concerned.

If a complaint appears to be justified we may need to investigate. We will contact direct the farmer or business involved to resolve the issue.


If you witness welfare problems or have any concerns related to health or welfare of livestock, including farm animals kept as pets, please contact us.
