Journal Contribution - Journal Article

Subtitle:An alternative method of intravenous fluid therapy in cattle : infusion in the auricular vein in practice
This article provides a detailed description of both the method and the requirements for an infusion in the ear vein of cattle, performed in daily practice. By using this approach, calves and cows can be given larger quantities of fluid during a longer period of time. Besides the ear anatomy, a description of the infusion technique is outlined. This technique is easy to learn and can, according to the experiences of the authors, be used under field conditions at low cost and with a minimal risk of complications.
