VTMED 6100

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

Students study carnivore anatomy by detailed systematic and regional dissection of the cat, with comparison to the dog.  Student dissection is supplemented with prosections, radiographs, palpation of live cats, and exercises focusing on surgical approaches.  There are opportunities to dissect other carnivores, such as the ferret and the fox, depending on availability of specimens.  The lectures augment the laboratory dissection, and introduce the student to clinical anatomy of the cat and functional morphological comparative features in the Order Carnivora, as well as introduce topics in feline medicine and surgery.  Students do an independent research project on the carnivore species of their choice, and give an oral presentation on this to the class.
