Post mortem points out health issues

A post-mortem can provide a lot of valuable information on pig health. At the Nottinghamshire VLA, Alan Murphy dissected a 60kg pig to show the East Midlands training club how they perform a post mortem and the range of things they look for i.e. joints, tail biting, lungs and disease that can occur in different places such as the liver. We heard that the better condition the carcase, the more useful the post-mortem will be. He also described what the vets are looking for when they're out on a unit.

Then John Richardson from Intervet gave some practical tips on injection techniques and ran through the legal requirements and safe storage of medicines.

If you're interested in Vet and Med training similar to this then let us know.
