About the course

Unfortunately, in veterinary practice, we are sometimes presented with animals where we suspect the injuries may be a result of non-accidental injury. But what is non-accidental injury and when presented with this situation, would you know what to do? In this advanced course, aimed at veterinary surgeons, we will look at the different types of non-accidental injury you may be presented with and what to do when a case is suspected. This course also aims to refresh your knowledge of the Animal Welfare Act and offer guidance on your legal responsibilities if you suspect a case of non-accidental injury. Additionally, this more advance course will also look at the following: • What is Veterinary Forensics? • The Role of the Expert Witness • Crime Scene Investigation and Handling Evidence
