Post Mortem Facilities
It is important to investigate deaths of livestock to be able to help prevent any further losses. We can carry out post mortems (PMs) on farm for cattle and in our PM room at the Hook Norton surgery for small ruminants. This facility is fully equipped for the job and allows for a quick diagnosis in conjunction with our onsite laboratory.
It is vital to ensure the specimens are as fresh as possible as this will improve the chances of finding a conclusive diagnosis.
A full history of the animal’s status on farm and treatment records for the animals involved are vital to assist the vets in getting the correct diagnosis
