    Default Historical equine surgery pics

    I ran across these while looking for something else and thought they were terribly interesting:


    Pretty wild! Can't even imagine how risky it all was with that sort of equipment.

    Anyone know what sort of anesthesia was used in this era? (If any? Or did they just restrain?)

    I hate tilt tables for horses! And when I was starting out there were some places that were still using them for horses. Bleech. They work better for ruminants...

    Cool pictures!

    I think in those times there was a lot of succinylcholine used, and ether and chloroform...maybe Meghan will comment...
