This training is RACE CE approved for both veterinary technicians and veterinarians. However, the class is very applicable to all clinic staff.

“Veterinary Forensics- Post Mortem”

Unfortunately, we can’t protect and save all our animal friends before neglect and cruelty ends their life. At this point, one of the most important part of the investigation for government agencies is the post mortem examination. Once the animal is deceased and cruelty is not longer active, prosecutors have to rely on a veterinarians assessment of the remains. As a veterinarian, do you know what to look for? This training by Dr. Martin Forester will bring you up to speed on the basics as well as some advanced strategies.
