A necropsy, also known as an animal autopsy, is a critical procedure conducted by veterinarians to investigate the cause of an animal's death. This post-mortem examination helps identify diseases, injuries, or underlying health issues that might have contributed to the animal's passing. Necropsies are crucial in advancing veterinary medicine, offering insights into disease patterns, potential outbreaks, and zoonotic concerns that can affect both animal and human health. By performing necropsies, veterinarians and researchers gain valuable knowledge to enhance animal care, develop preventive measures, and safeguard public health. Embracing necropsies as a diagnostic tool underscores a commitment to understanding and improving the well-being of animals and the broader community.
