Stomach tubing

Stomach tubing is a simple, useful technique that is used to administer fluids. A lack of confidence in performing the technique and justifiable concerns regarding fluids being delivered to the lungs, instead of the stomach, may result in this lifesaving technique being underutilised by those caring for cattle. These factsheets aim to allay some of these fears by describing the correct technique and safety measures that can be used to minimise complications.

Distal limb constricting foreign body

Caused by acute trauma - barbed wire/wire gets wrapped around the animal's leg, which may be unnoticed. Wire cuts into the skin and flesh and causes deep chronic wound. Any underlying structures are also affected; circulatory vessels, nerves, tendon, ligaments, bone. Protective barrier of the skin has been compromised and infection will probably occur.
