This Concept Map, created with IHMC CmapTools, has information related to: Castrations in Large Animals, Chemical Immunization against Testosterone, Stallion Proceedure Ideally done at a young age (əY). Make an incision in the skin over each testicle. An open, closed, or semi-closed procedure is performed, depending on how you plan to negotiate the lining (the vaginal tunic) around the testicle. After making the incision(s),remove the testicles using an emasculator—a tool that cuts through the spermatic cord, crushing the vessels providing blood to the testicles—as well as 4-5 cm of cord to ensure no testosterone-producing tissue gets left behind, Chemical Immunization against Sex hormones, Castration Where?

Other options, Stallion Anatomy The Scrotum & Testicles are located ventrally, Emasculator 3 types White's, Boar Proceedure Male pigs are castrated using a disinfected surgical knife at ɛD of age. A trained worker or veterinarian holds the pig and makes an incision above each testicle. The testicle is pushed through the scrotal sac. The person doing the procedure is careful to break the testicular cords properly. It is important not to cause a hernia in the pig. The wound is then sprayed with an antiseptic, Castration With what? Drug Chart, Castration Why? Rationale, Ram & Buck Proceedure There are three commonly used methods of castration for sheep/goats: 1. The Burdizzo method, 2. The banding or elastrator method 3. The knife (surgical) method The methods are selected according to age of the animal and size of the testes. For example, the elastrator method being more suitable to very young animals. It is good to match castration method to size and age of animal. Best done at ɛW of age. MUST GIVE TETANUS TOXIN POST-OP!, Castration When?
