Veterinary-sanitary examination of meat burnt animals

Noted that the experiments and clinical many years of practice prove more difficult treatment burned animals. This requires a long time, high tenacity and voltage attending veterinary specialist, as well as certain, sometimes quite substantial, material costs, which in extensive burns often do not lead to the desired results. Experience has shown that successful treatment of only those animals that received burns mostly I and partially II degree, as well as the animals that received deep burns with a total area of up to 5% of the body surface. In some cases, especially valuable breeding animals, you can try to heal in the presence of burn up to 10% of the surface of the skin. The treatment of animals with more extensive and deep burns is economically inexpedient.
Naturally, the question arises, what to do with the animals that received burns to the greater surface area of the skin than indicated above?
Vast experimental material experiments on different types of food animals convinces us that these animals are economically more profitable due time to kill for meat.
Ante-mortem inspection of such animals is conducted according to accepted rules. However, depending on the area burnt surface, the depth of the burn, the time passed from the moment burn until the time of slaughter, and the type and age of the animal, find certain clinical signs of burn disease, which is described in detail in the relevant section of this paper. Pre-slaughter starvation excerpts burnt animals to produce does not follow, as they rarely take food. Burnt animals better to kill on a separate slaughter site or sanitary slaughter. If this is not possible, in General slaughter hall, but after the slaughter of healthy animals.
Bleeding, bleeding and butchering carcasses of animals is the same as is customary at this meat-processing enterprise at slaughter healthy animals.
The blood of the burnt animals for food purposes are not collected - it goes for technical purposes.
Post-mortem veterinary examination of carcasses and bodies burnt animals is carried out according to the standard technique. At post mortem veterinary-sanitary examination of carcasses and bodies burnt animals find various pathological changes depending on the burn area to total surface of the body of the animal and from the time of slaughter from the moment of receiving the animals burn.
So, when the slaughter of animals in the first 2-3 days, with burns to 10%. the surface of the body, pathological changes is mainly expressed in the form of necrosis of the skin at the place of burning, swelling in the subcutaneous tissue of the affected area. Sometimes, a slight swelling loose intermuscular tissue adjacent to the burn areas. There is an increase and a slight swelling of the regional lymph nodes burnt side of the carcass: the surface of the neck, knee folds and superficial inguinal. Found some laxity of the cardiac muscle and certain point bleeding in the course of coronary vessels, a slight accumulation of fluid in the heart bag; in the lungs - the phenomenon of congestive hyperemia; a slight increase, congestive hyperemia and some laxity of the liver, the cut in some areas noted nutmeg figure; spleen flabby, with symptoms of congestive hyperemia; in some cases there were small hemorrhages under the capsule of the kidneys, on the section of their border between cortical and brain layers flattened; the mucosa of the gastrointestinal tract swollen, there are separate point bleeding.
