Veterinary Forensic Medicine and Pathology

18th September 2015

University of Liverpool

Nowadays the number of cases of animal abuse in the UK is growing, and with it, the frequency of requests to veterinary practitioners and pathologists to provide their expert opinion on forensic cases. Being called to provide evidence in court, or asked to produce appropriate and detailed evidence to be used in a case, can be a challenging experience.
