All surgery presents a series of challenges and accounts for the popularity of the discipline in both the veterinary and medical professions. The challenges in bovine surgery differ from those met with by the companion animal surgeon. Apart from the economic question of whether surgery is justified, other challenges include the knowledge of anatomy pertinent to the surgery, the demands of manual dexterity, and the physical stress imposed on patient and surgeon alike when surgery is performed in a sub-optimal environment. This book, a volume in the Library of Veterinary Practice series, provides a thorough coverage of the subject for students and practising veterinarians
