This text addresses the most common clinical procedures in veterinary practice used with horses, cattle, llamas, goats, and pigs; with primary emphasis placed on horses and cattle. The purpose, potential complications, and a detailed equipment list are provided for every procedure. In addition to listing the technical steps of each procedure, this text includes a rationale column which explains, amplifies and provides additional insight concerning each step. Topics of importance include restraint; husbandry; physical examination; specimen collection; clinical procedures; lower limb radiographs; neonatal procedures; and surgical and anesthetic preps. The appendices provide standard TPR, CBC and husbandry information, as well as common terminology used in the equine and bovine industries. This is an ideal reference for students in veterinary technology and the only step-by-step large animal clinical procedures text available today.

The content is very good and well organized. I really like the attention to practical and clinical applications of each species. - Melvin Chambliss, Alfred State University
I like the manual format for the procedures. The format is easy to follow and would be appropriate for both students and graduate technicians.
It has a very practical, to-the-point way of addressing common procedures that technicians would either perform alone, or in conjunction with the veterinarian. It could be a good reference for students preparing for class beforehand, as well as to review procedures in actual practice prior to doing them.- S. Burnett, Argosy University
