Surgery, Anesthesia and Experimental Techniques in Swine

A practical and technical guide for medical and veterinary researchers using swine as experimental animals, but also describes anesthetic protocols and other procedures helpful to veterinarians providing clinical care to pet pigs or in agricultural practice. The sections on surgery assume a fundamental knowledge of it, and others serve as primers on species-species differences in anatomy and physiology. The surgical techniques described are manual, because they are more applicable to most research labs and can be adapted as new technology becomes available. Many of the uses described are relatively new as swine are being substituted for other species such as dogs and primates. Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
