Restraint and Handling for Veterinary Technicians and Assistants
Great care must be taken to ensure the safety of the animals being cared for as well as to maintain your safety and that of the coworkers you are handling the animals with.
The material in each chapter is presented in a uniform and easily understandable format. A deviation from the standard prose format has been adopted, intentionally, to provide concise answers to critical questions everyone has related to the techniques of restraint: “What do I need to do, and what can go wrong?” The goal of the book is to provide these answers in a clinically accessible format, eliminating the need to wade through more traditional texts.
With this goal in mind, the text is constructed such that the purpose for each procedure is clearly stated, followed by a list of potential complications. Equipment requirement lists precede the step-by-step instructions for performing each procedure. Finally, procedural instructions are augmented by short explanatory statements or comments.
