This is a three-part series. Attending all three sessions is not required but, for your convenience, you only need to register once. Your registration will admit you to all three sessions.

Part I: Recognition and Documentation

This lecture will provide the veterinarian and staff with key information to better recognize cases of suspected abuse including: potential sources of abuse cases, animals at risk and suspicious indicators of abuse. It will also provide training on how to properly document all information including statements, examination findings and use of photography. 

Part II: Hospital Procedures

This lecture will teach veterinarians and staff the importance of knowing the laws in their respective locations including criminal cruelty laws, the veterinary practice act, any mandated reporting, and any confidentiality and immunity laws. They will learn how to develop a Standard Operating Procedure for their hospital. The importance of client interaction in suspected abuse cases will be discussed with examples of scenarios they will likely encounter being presented.

Part III: The Veterinarian's Role in the Legal Case

This lecture will discuss in great detail the development of the Forensic Report for cruelty cases including legal issues and common mistakes made by the veterinarian. They will learn how to prepare for court and any type of testimony including depositions and trials. The veterinarians and staff will learn about different ways to learn and gain valuable case experience working with human forensic experts and cruelty investigators. Case outcomes will be discussed and the variety of factors beyond the veterinarian’s expertise that can affect the outcome.
