The post mortem inspection of poultry meat 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 it is ruled as a suitable or not for human consumption and that 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. Consequently, the community of practice (CoP) has produced this manual authored by official slaughterhouse veterinarians of the Generalitat de Catalunya. 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 different poultry 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 must be said that in some cases it has not been possible to obtain images that illustrate some of the injuries or diseases that are defined.
