Veterinary Forensics

placeholder image


Veterinary forensics is the intersection of veterinary medicine and the law. It takes the education and skills of veterinary medicine and applies it to answering legal questions.


  • What is animal abuse, cruelty, and neglect from a medical and a legal viewpoint and how do these differ?
  • What are the signs and red flags for animal abuse, cruelty, and neglect?
  • How are animal abuse cases adequately and correctly documented?
  • What are the different organizational roles in an animal abuse case?
  • How are animal abuse and interpersonal violence such as domestic violence, child abuse, and elder abuse connected?
  • Who, if anyone, is a mandatory reporter of animal abuse in my state and what does this mean?

Any organization or business that comes into contact with animals might be witness to or have knowledge of animal abuse.
This could include:


  • Veterinary hospitals
  • Animal shelters and rescue organizations
  • Wildlife organizations
  • Attorneys
  • Law enforcement
  • Code enforcement
  • Firefighters
  • Social workers
  • In-home service providers




If you are an individual such as a residential homeowner and you suspect animal abuse, contact your local law enforcement agency.

In the United States, this varies with location and may be:

  • County or city animal control services;
  • Humane societies;
  • 911

Woolf Veterinary Forensics is not a law enforcement organization.
