"This is a book that should be in every clinic.  I am sure that most... readers will have had an animal presented where abuse was suspected.  This book will be very useful in those cases."  - Veterinary Information Network

"From crime scene investigation and forensic testing to compiling evidence that will hold up in court, Veterinary Forensics offers a resource essential for animal cruelty investigators." - Midwest Book Review

“Dr. Melinda Merck is well-qualified to produce such a text. The author has included 27 appendices with useful examples of various logs, worksheets, and record and report forms. The book also includes a detailed index. Veterinary Forensics fulfills its intended purpose to serve as a practical reference and resource guide.” - JAALAS

“Help[s] fill the void in the forensic veterinary medical literature. Nobody could argue with Dr. Merck's enthusiasm and zeal to make us aware of an important topic that we would prefer to ignore, but should not." - Veterinary Pathology
