Improving the job we do with onfarm sheep and goat postmortems
Keywords:small ruminant, sheep, goats, necropsy, post-mortem exam
A distance-support program for assisting veterinarians to perform better on-farm postmortems on adult sheep and goats is presented. The support materials are explained - most of which are web-based, improving access and simplicity. Preliminary results indicate that many diagnoses have been made that may otherwise have gone undiagnosed, thus the results are a support to producers and their veterinarians in improving and fine-tuning flock/herd health programs.
