Restraint tool or chemical restraint should be considered for prolonged or potentially painful procedures. The dog can be restrained in lateral recumbency (photo) or in a sitting position for injections and minor procedures.
A shy or fearful dog may need extra time spent with it to make it more comfortable. A highly aggressive dog may have to be tranquilized with acepromazine or handled with a capture stick. To pick up a dog to place it on the table, put one arm in front of the of the animals chest and the other either behind the rear legs, at the level of the stifles or under the abdomen and lift in a “scooping” motion.

Cattle dehorning is a necessary management practice to prevent injury to animals and handlers. It is generally accepted that the younger the calf is at the time of dehorning, the less invasive and painful the procedure. The American Veterinary Medical Association and many other organizations recommend that cattle be dehorned at the earliest age practicable.
The most convenient method of dehorning is cauterization of the horn bud when calves are 4 to 6 weeks old using a hot iron. Dehorning irons have a cup-shaped hollow in front which fits over the horn bud. By holding the iron at an angle and moving it around in a circulate motion, the skin right around the horn bud is cauterized. The objective is to cause the skin under and around the horn bud to die, preventing horn-growth. (continue reading…)
