This is the seventh and last of a series of publications of selected materials sponsored by I@mak project and is targeted at district extension workers and farmers of Uganda. A thorough anatomical and pathphysiological knowledge of the condition and meticulous attention to surgical principles are the basis for all surgical procedures. The procedures described in this guide are the most commonly used and can be carried out in general practice. This book is not aimed at replacing a textbook. It is assumed that the field veterinarian is well equipped with concepts of asepsis and antisepsis, instrumentation, suture materials and techniques, wound healing and supportive measures. In all instances of bovine surgery humane animal restraint and appropriate anaesthesia must be used. The book deals with Ruminant Surgery: Restraint Methods; and Surgical Techniques.
