Webinar Abstract: 

Animal abuse investigations in the province of Alberta are becoming more common and complex, and are increasingly requiring the assistance of veterinarians. With recognition of the Link prompting local law enforcement agencies to dedicate more resources to these investigations and the AbVMA mandating reporting of abuse and neglect, these cases are being seen more frequently in both emergency and first opinion practice. Being involved in these cases can be stressful, especially when we don’t know how they typically proceed. In this webinar Dr. Doyle will share cases from Alberta outlining the process of an investigation from the veterinary perspective. We will examine several cases from initial presentation through court proceedings with a view to demystifying the process and encouraging the veterinary team to feel comfortable with involvement.
