Veterinary Forensics: What Every Practitioner Needs to Know - Vet Education


Veterinary Forensics: What Every Practitioner Needs to Know

Free Webinar brought to you by Hill's Pet Nutrition, USA - Innovation Series

This webinar encompasses the basics on veterinary forensic medicine and what every practitioner should know about seeing and addressing these cases. Forensic cases walk into general practice clinics, emergency hospitals and shelters every day. It is our job as veterinarians to recognize signs of animal abuse, cruelty or neglect and understand our rights and responsibilities in how to report suspicion and who to contact when we have concerns. Through an overview of veterinary forensic medicine, updates on the field and several case examples this webinar will address topics not often accessible in primary veterinary education.
