One of the most important diagnostic tools available to livestock producers is the necropsy. A post-mortem (after death) examination is extremely valuable because it provides an opportunity to examine everything, and can reveal answers to the cause of a disease problem that other laboratory procedures may not. Ultimately this may help prevent future losses for the livestock operation.
A full necropsy includes several components:
Shortly after death, all living things begin to decompose. Autolysis (self-breakdown) is accelerated by higher temperatures. The more autolyzed the animal is, the harder it becomes to figure out the actual cause of death. It is important that a necropsy be performed as soon as possible in order to obtain optimum results.
