Bovine surgery is both challenging and complicated. Not only does the surgeon have to decide whether surgery is economically justified, but surgery often has to be performed in a sub-optimal environment.
Following on from the worldwide success of the first edition, this new edition continues to act as a step-by-step guide to standard surgical techniques. Now with two new authors from Switzerland and North America, both the text and illustrations have been considerably expanded. In addition, special attention is given to issues relating to peri-operative analgesia and animal welfare, food safety, and drug dosages.
• Maintains the popular concise and accessible format of the first edition - perfect for on-the-field work;
• Two additional authors, with world renowned expertise in bovine surgery and lameness;
• Detailed instruction on the basics of effective surgery - proper instrumentation, asepsis, effective anaesthesia and essential techniques;
• Much more information on lameness, as well as numerous new line drawings to aid instruction.

Good so far! Can i be in it..?
"Hey kid looks like you're assigned to bunk all the to the back. Bottom bunk." Replies a general. "What is your name?" The Alicorn replies "Nitro." The general says "good luck." I stare at the room full of cadets willing to do this. I sit on my bunk. I quickly fall asleep. "Wake up soldiers wake up. LAST CALL WAKE UP." Everypony gears up in a suit. That is green. I looked like a halo guy. Wait I AM A HALO GUY! "Traning begins today go to the courtyard." I follow down the way to it. I see ponies in simulations with enemies. I pick up a sort of energy sword. Then it says welcome to your simulation. The eneimies apeared out of nowhere. I throw the energy sword and then cut them down. How this happenend. I was noticed for standing up to a bully in school. I look up to see something bad. A real bad guy ship.
