This second edition is in response to the acceptance of the first edition and the continued need for such a book for both veterinary students and large animal practitioners.

The purpose of this book is to present some fundamental techniques in large animal surgery to both veterinary students and large animal practitioners. It's designed to be brief, discussing only the major steps in a particular operation, and each discussion is accompanied by appropriate illustrations. Most of the techniques presented can be performed without the advantages of a fully equipped large animal hospital or teaching institution.

All of the drawings in the book are original and based on rough sketches and photographs taken at various points during actual surgery.
