This innovative resource provides both step-by-step instructions and vivid, full-color photographs that explain and illustrate proper animal restraint techniques.

It covers handling and restraint for all domestic species: cats, dogs, horses, cattle, pigs, sheep goats, lab animals, rabbits, ferrets, and birds. The book also includes normal and abnormal behavior characteristics, precautions, special handling, restraint devices, and descriptions of medical procedures, such as venipuncture, for which special restraint procedures are necessary.
