Abstract

The surgical management of certain wild species, as well as domestic felines, has presented numerous problems to veterinarians. Many doctors have shied away from treating simple surgical problems, trauma cases, and medical problems in species of animals that at best are physically difficult to handle. Euthanasia is often offered as an adjunct to our inability to handle these animals. With the advent of Ketamine hydrochloride many of the intractable wildlife animals can now be handled safely by practitioners willing to work with them.
