September 8, 2019: The abdominal exploratory: from xyphoid to pubis
A chance to cut is a chance to cure… but before you enter that abdomen, what do you need to know? In this VETgirl online webinar, Dr. Steven Mehler, DACVS reviews the abdominal exploratory in small animal patients. In this lecture, Dr. Mehler will discuss general surgical principles, client/team/operating room/patient preparation, how to perform a systematic exploratory laparotomy, and when to biopsy. He will also review surgical techniques and common abdominal procedures to help the veterinarian.
