The geometric design method provides an accurate means of deriving the total body surface area TBSA of miniature swine and also the percentage of the TBSA for a given area. The formulae for TBSA derived for domestic swine and the Rules of 5 are not applicable to miniature swine. The equation S 0.121 W.575 provides a more accurate, quick assessment of TBSA of miniature swine.
