Abstract

Goats are used as animal models for surgery and trauma research. The authors discuss appropriate methods for induction of anesthetics, intubation and surgical maintenance of the goat during acute experimentation. Risks imposed by the Q fever pathogen Coxiella burnetii are described, as well as measures that have proven effective in minimizing zoonotic transmission of this pathogen to laboratory personnel. With appropriate knowledge of its applications, peri- and intra-operative management and limitations, the goat is a suitable animal model for a variety of biomedical research applications.
