VVV Episode 5: The Art of Bovine Necropsy

It is not very glamorous… But it is necessary. The bovine necropsy, or post mortem examination, is done in order to determine why the animal has died. This involves a lot of physical work, and some really keen pathology skills! ┬áIt’s an examination that our practitioners perform daily, so it is something we encourage our students to practice as much as they can while they are with us.

Meet Amber, one of our newest UCVM 4th year students on rotation who is very smiley and eager to get started!
