I found this course to be extremely informative, if not harrowing and shocking at times, but so important in bringing to the forefront a problem that has always been present, that is the lack being able to speak out about potential animal cruelty. This course showed the ways in which Veterinarians can now recognize, evaluate and report potential cases, with confidence believing that what we observe in our clients and patients is paramount to recognizing not only the animal abuse, but often the sinister concurrent human abuse.
