Page x - Ethics can enrich our views of other animals in their own worlds and in our different worlds, and help us to see that variations among animals are worthy of respect, admiration, and appreciation. The study of ethics can also broaden the range of possible ways in which we interact with other animals without compromising their lives.

Virtual surgery has been shown to be an effective alternative.
