Details

Elective altering is among the most commonly performed surgeries in exotic companion mammals. Recently, a few small retrospective surveys have described advantages of certain techniques over others. For this reason, and to allow maximum flexibility for the surgeon in cases of anatomic abnormalities or variations (cryptorchid animals, or those with ovarian cystic disease), it is important to be familiar with more than one technique for spay and castration.

This lab will work with rabbit and rodent cadavers to practice common altering techniques, including scrotal, prescrotal and abdominal castration, and traditional midline and flank approach surgeries of the female reproductive tract. The pre-lab lecture will review basic anatomy as is pertains to surgical approaches, demonstrate techniques that will be used in the lab, and review current literature on surgical approaches for both normal and abnormal animals. 

Both graduate veterinarians and students who have completed basic surgery courses will benefit.
