Veterinary Clinical Procedures in Large Animal Practice 2nd Edition PDF
With this goal in mind, each section in the book builds upon the previous one, introducing basic information first before progressing to more advanced topics.
SECTION I – This section provides the necessary background for performing the procedures introduced later in the book as well as honing essential hands-on skills. It explains various rope materials and proper maintenance and demonstrates how to tie common knots used in large animal restraint (Chapter 1). This section also introduces other tools and methods used in restraint and the guidelines and recommendations for the use of each (Chapter 2). Finally, it reviews the proper procedures for the daily care of large animals (Chapter 3).
SECTION II – This section dives into the details of physical examination and provides animal-specific information related to questions that may arise based on the type and the health of the large animal. It includes information on history taking, patient observation, reproductive-specific procedures, and examination for legal purposes (Chapter 4).
SECTION III – This section walks through typical sample collection ( Chapter 5) and clinical procedures (Chapter 6) encountered in large animal practice. Every Procedure introduced offers information specific to each large animal. In addition, information specific to each large animal neonate is covered separately in another chapter (Chapter 7) due to the unique needs of newly born animals.
