The field of veterinary forensic sciences focuses on the application of various fields of the forensic sciences to animal species in a legal setting[1]. Cases involving veterinary forensic sciences include civil and criminal litigation. Animal species involved can include domestic and wildlife species, however, the investigation of crimes involving wildlife species are generally included in the sub-field of wildlife forensic sciences[2]. Areas of forensic investigations into animal crime and within the scope of veterinary forensic sciences involve neglect and cruelty, puppy mills, organized dog fighting, and hoarding.[3]
