Given the complexity of porcine anatomy and the frequent appearance of swine in veterinary, agricultural and biomedical labs, newcomers have a steep learning curve and little time to learn pigs properly. This reference gives students comprehensive directions to preoperative care all the way through to recovery in a variety of experimental and practical settings, covering biology, handling, husbandry, anatomy, anesthetics and analgesia, perioperative care, wound closure and integument, and directions to procedures throughout the body systems, including the gastrointestinal, liver and biliary, urinary and reproductive, cardiovascular and pulmonary. Sections address catheterization and imagery endoscopy, xeno-transplantation and transgenic technologies, toxicology, and radiobiology. The illustrations and photographs are particularly well done.
