|Abstract||Most pet owners are extremely devoted to their pets, often considering them members of the family. This devotion can carry over into the owner’s will or trust, leaving gifts for their pets in such instruments. A will or trust involving the pet can be important to the veterinarian because, for example, a trust could specify whether and under what circumstances a medical procedure or euthanasia may take place. This article provides an overview of pet trusts, including historical background and current developments, pet trust basics, and a discussion of key concerns for veterinarians relating to pet trusts.|
