This muscle is associated with the internal rectus sheath.
Non-reducible hernias may be due to _______ or ______.
Abdominal pressure bandages are more likely to work in cows than horses because?

In order to attempt non-surgical correction of a hernia, it must be?
Reducible hernias in animals under _ weeks old are generally contraindicative of surgical correction.
In order to close skin in a more asthetic manner, without excess tension, use this incision instead of elliptical.
_____ techniques (_______) can only be used with reducible hernias.
______ (______) 
What is the main argument against excisive/open techniques in hernia correction?
Usually faster (since all skin does not need to be carefully dissected off internal hernial sac), may have better incision healing, used for any kind of hernia. 
True or false: Imbrication (overlap) is recommended in closure of hernial rings to better withstand tension?
True or false: calves should be fasted for 24 hours and water removed 6 hours before surgery for hernia correction?
If simple interrupted won't work on a hernial ring due to tension, name a method you might use to reduce that tension?
Why would the alternative method of relief incision not be recommended?
Two big cuts as opposed to numerous little ones 
The hole is just too big. No tension reduction will let you close. What now?
This is the most common complication of herniacorrection, reduced with abdominal bandages.
Which structure is least likely involved in omphalitis?
To avoid contamination of your surgical site, you'd clamp or oversew these before correcting omphalitis
Make sure to remove one of them afterwards. you'll know which one. 
How many carmalts would you use when ligating an umbilical artery for removal?
If a urachus extends near the bladder, where would you resect the bladder?
The most unfavourable prognosis occurs when the umbilical vein enlargement extends to this organ
What is the most likely complication of cauterization of a persistent urachus?
In this species, patent urachus is more rare, but usually associated with omphalitis or hernia.
Horses and swine have a _________ scrotum.
Unlike ruminants 
The scrotal blood supply is contained in this, which is marked externally by this other thing.
This modified subcutaneous tissue includes fibroelastic tissue and smooth muscle.
This is the muscle responsible for adjusting how low the testes hang.
This evagination of the parietal peritoneum contains the spermatic cord, epididymis and testicle.
Continuous with peritoneal cavity via inguinal canal 
The spermatic cord contains the following:
This one's kind of off on it's own. 
This reflection of the parietal layer of vaginal tunic suspends structures of the spermatic cord like mesentery does intestines.
The ______ _____ of the testicle attachest he tail of epididymis to the testicle
This attachest he tail of the epididymis to the vaginal tunic
Both of the aforementioned ligaments are derived from this structure
What is an additional indication for castration in goats?
All animals to remove male characteristics, avoid breeding, permit housing and handling together. 
You should palpate to confirm this condition is not present prior to any routine castration.
Also epididymitis, orchitis, tumours, inguinal hernias but less obvious than this one.

_-_ weeks (calf) 
_-_weeks (lamb) 
_-_ years (horse) 
What am i referring to? (get your mind out of the gutter)
'Grab it close enough to the base that you can't break it off then try to.'

Best used during fly season, as does not leave open wound. 
You may do ______ incision on any kind of scrotum, but _____ incision is only for pendulous ones.
Ventral for horses, lateral or caudal for everybody else. 
With regards to vaginal tunic, this method minimizes hydrocele and infection post-op, but there is less effective hemostasis.
Less popular with horses and older food animals. 
In this animal you must remove the tunic afterwards with open technique.
To avoid hydrocele and post-op infection. 
You'd normally do this to the spermatic cord in small animals, but it increases risk of infection in large.
Less aseptic technique you know. 
In younger animals, this is the main way of dealing with the spermatic cord.
This species is always given the emasculator or ligation, never traction or torsion.
Because they're princesses. 
How long should you monitor for signs of hemorrhage after castration?
Exercise in clean environments may prevent this most common complication of castration.
You can prevent this by removing the spermatic cord as proximally as possible, and removing vaginal tunic.
