VETERINARY MEDICINE

After administering general anesthesia, prepare the skin around the wound for aseptic surgery. Prepare and drape a wide area around the wound so that when the walking sutures advance the skin, they do not pull haired skin from under the drape.

Manipulate the skin around the wound to determine where the most skin is available for wound closure.
