Veterinarians can help investigators better document cases of alleged animal maltreatment.

This webinar will give pointers on how to work with your veterinarian to help them help you.

• Learn how forensic clinical and postmortem exams differ from regular practice;

• Learn steps to take to help your veterinarian capture information that supports or refutes a non-accidental cause of injury

• Learn case packaging techniques to deliver information in a concise and effective manner.
