The use of standardized pre-sterilized instrument sets in small animal surgery contributes to practice efficiency by having sterilized instruments ready when they are needed. A basic set of instruments is prepared and can be supplemented with special packs for specific applications. A disadvantage to this approach is that the expense when the packs are originally established may be greater.
