Abdominal Surgery – Deciding When, What and How to Biopsy
with Jason Mouatt, BVSc FANZCVS
Veterinarians commonly perform abdominal surgery for relatively straight forward and known problems. However, it is relatively common to find unexpected issues that can’t be easily resolved, or there may be no obvious cause at all. This aim of this session is to discuss ideas on decision making and thought processes during exploratory abdominal surgery. In particular, we will look at options and techniques for biopsy of various organs to both increase the diagnostic benefits and clinical satisfaction of laparotomy.

This presentation is aimed at providing the general practitioner with clinically relevant information on the initial stabilisation and post-operative care of patients with septic peritonitis. Focusing on the treatment of shock, empirical antibiotic therapy, pre- and post-operative analgesia.
