I'm a veterinary student who has to do an assignment that requires me to talk to a non-Cornell large animal surgeon. Unfortunately I don't know any! I have to write one page about ANY aspect of bovine abdominal surgery.
As a small animal person I am interested in hearing about the challenges and rewards of abdominal surgery in such a big animal. Being used to working on dogs and cats, the world of cow surgery is new and scary. I'd love to hear what an experienced large animal vet has to say about what their favorite surgeries and parts of the procedure are, as well as the surgeries they dread and what specific challenges those pose.
Since this is a forum I'd love to hear lot of opinions. Chime in was a favorite story!
Thank you in advance for your help!
