10.8 Conclusions�

10.1  Introduction

The practice of forensic toxicology differs from that of clinical toxicology. The difference resides in the fact that suspicion and confirmation of intoxication must be supported by analytical assessment and not necessarily the response to treatment. The analytical investigation starts and ends with:

1. the heightened suspicion of intoxication based on clinical or post-mortem signs.

2. the appropriate identification of the toxin or class of the intoxicating agent.

13.2  A Historical Context

That animals and humans always were, and will continue to be, intricately and inextricably linked is borne out by the arts, from caveman drawings through painting and literature to photography; and by science, from Darwin to current studies of animal biology and behaviour. The relationship includes dependence, respect and affection, as well as power, exploitation and abuse.
