Forensic Veterinary

As part of the Veterinary Pathology, increasingly there are many cases of animal abuse and natural disasters that require accurate and specific description of the process. For this reason, in recent years we have focused in particular on developing a specific methodology, which departs from the routine necropsy can be performed on a cadaver. Thus, it is necessary to conduct a detailed study of the external survey, sometimes for traumatic injuries, hangings, shootings, etc.


1) Development of methods for describing specific study of these cases, not only on the cause of death but also the elapsed playing time.

2) Establish a specific report and diagnostic protocol in Veterinary Forensic, which also includes macroscopic and histopathology descriptions, so as complementary toxicological and microbiological studies.
