Delivering clear and concise step-by-step instructions, VETERINARY CLINICAL PROCEDURES IN LARGE ANIMAL PRACTICE, 2e thoroughly addresses the most common clinical procedures performed on horses, cattle, sheep, llamas, goats, and pigs in large animal veterinary practice. Every procedure includes a stated purpose, a review of potential complications, a checklist of the equipment required, and step-by-step descriptions with corresponding rationale that not only explains what needs to be done, but why each action will lead toward a successful outcome for the patient.
