Technical large animal emergency rescue.


Technical large animal emergency rescue.

Gimenez, Rebecca et al.

Blackwell Publishing


409 pages




Animals can strangle or drown in a matter of minutes, but most ordinary people have no idea how to handle an animal weighing hundreds if not thousands of pounds. Instructor Gimenez and her co-authors, both veterinarians, begin with prevention and evacuation planning, large animal behavior, and technical rescue scene management. They also cover restraint, water and unstable ground, loose animals, trailer incidents, circumstances involving Barnes and wildfires, animal transport, field euthanasia, rigging, manipulating animal victims, emergency medicine, helicopter operations, decontamination, livestock transport, and learning from actual incidents. Fully illustrated with field photographs.
