The post-mortem inspection carried out by the group of official slaughterhouse veterinarians is an important part of the official controls related to fresh meat and, as such, is one of the elements that determines whether or not it is deemed fit for human consumption and Notifiable diseases must be notified. Slaughterhouses are optimal environments to observe and record the particularities of the varied animal pathology that occurs. This information, if shared, can become a very useful and interesting tool for the group of professionals. The authorship of these manuals is official slaughterhouse veterinarians of the Generalitat of Catalonia. The content has been conveyed through sheets containing scientific, technical and legal information for each of the diseases and injuries described. Likewise, the sheets are illustrated with images obtained in the different slaughterhouses in Catalonia. The purpose is that the cards can be a practical support for the post mortem inspection and an aid for the opinion. For this reason, an attempt has been made to establish a position towards the opinion of meats with the reasons developed in the most concrete way possible. It should be noted that in some cases it has not been possible to obtain images that illustrate some of the injuries or diseases that are defined.
