Probang

Probang used on cattle for FMD sampling (© All rights reserved by Eufmd)

Probang is surgical tool in veterinary medicine used to reach obstructions and either force them along the oesophagus by (gently and carefully) using the probang as a ram or, by using a hollow probang into which a rod with a corkscrew is attached, extract objects such as pieces of potato or turnip too long for the paunch, or to take samples like for example foot and mouth disease. It is used mainly for cattle, but it can be used also for small ruminants and other animals.
