Veterinary surgery is one of the most important clinical disciplines forming a veterinarian as a professional. Having mastered it, the student is able to independently make a diagnosis of surgical pathology to conduct surgical treatment, to carry out clinical examination and the necessary preventive measures. Surgery teaches students to make responsible decisions on their own, make timely decisions and bear personal responsibility for it both for the outcome and outcome of surgical intervention, and for the health and life of patients. Along with mastering the surgical skills, the student masters the practical issues of ethics and deontology of veterinary medicine. Thanks to this, the future specialist acquires the skills to work with people in the production environment, with owners of animals delivering patients for first aid, with employees of state and farm enterprises. In this case, the student should always remember the humane treatment of his patients and be an example for colleagues . Based on clinical thinking and deontology, the veterinarian can fully, in accordance with modern requirements, fulfill the duties assigned to him according to his position. The main thing in the preparation of a veterinary specialist in the field of surgery is to give graduates a sufficient amount of knowledge, to develop appropriate professional skills and practical skills in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention

surgical pathology, regardless of the place and conditions in which it may be.

The study of veterinary surgery is carried out in close interconnection with other major disciplines - clinical diagnostics, therapy, pharmacology, normal and pathological physiology, anatomy, pathological anatomy, parasitology and epizootology, obstetrics, gynecology and biotechnology of reproduction.
A major role in mastering surgical art is played by knowledge of the basic laws and categories of philosophy. It is on its basis that you can establish the correct diagnosis, in accordance with the requirements of the logic to accept and perform medical tasks. The development and formation of clinical medical thinking is impossible without knowledge of philosophy. If philosophy is the art of thought, literature is the art of word, then surgery is the art of action. Only by operating can a student become and be a surgeon.

For successful treatment of surgically ill animals, a doctor

must have deep knowledge and practical experience in performing operations - from the simplest to the most complex. Therefore, during the training of surgery, students should operate as much as possible precisely in those conditions in which they will have to work after graduating from high school. Only versatile training in the subject allows the future veterinarian to develop the most important surgical reflexes - aseptic, instrumental and tissue. This is achieved due to the repeated performance of the same manual actions during surgery on a large number of animals. No simulations of operations will teach the student the ability to clinically think, examine the patient, establish a diagnosis, perform operations and conduct a postoperative period of a high professional level until the sutures are removed, that is, until the recovery of the animal.
