 The article reviews the bioethics of veterinary medicine as an alternative to the professional ethics of a veterinarian. From this position the transplantation of organs in the field of veterinary medicine is analyzed, its ethical problems are compared with the ethical problems of transplantology in human medicine. The case of two recent kidney transplantations to dogs in Poland, and the public reaction to them, as well as kidney transplantation to dogs in Moscow, which have been already conducted for several years, are described. The problem of organ donation in the field of veterinary medicine and the quality of life of donor dogs is being raised. The author argues that these cases go beyond professional ethics and should be considered more widely, i.е. in the framework of bioethics. 

Key words:bioethics, professional ethics, veterinary science, medicine, transplantation
