eyehooks

eyehooks

obstetrical instruments which provide an attachment to the head for purposes of traction. The hook may be a single with a long (3 ft) handle manipulated from outside the cow or mare, for which these instruments are designed. There are also small (2 to 3 inch) hooks used in pairs hung facing each other on a loop of cord. Each hook is placed in the medial canthus of one of the eyes and traction applied; the traction serves to pull the hooks together and deeper into the eye sockets.
