Technical book on avian inspection, written by an author with a wide experience in this field, which tackles the most important findings recorded and reported during broiler meat inspection at abattoirs. After an introduction about poultry inspection, the book describes the most significant conditions (pathologies, rejections due to poor processing, offal for human consumption) found during broiler inspection. Each chapter is divided into three parts clearly differentiated: definition, origin, and responsibilities arising for veterinarian/inspector. A chapter entirely dedicated to animal welfare is included in this book. It is focused on the major aspects to be considered by veterinarian/inspector under compliance with current legislation. Therefore, it is intended to provide a complete book with an accurate practical guidance which helps the veterinarian in his daily work at abattoir.
