This course is a systems approach to the study of anatomy and physiology of common domestic animals, emphasizing Ruminant, Equine, Swine, Canine and Feline as the animal models. The on-line course materials will provide the student with a complete overview of how each body system functions in the maintenance of a normal healthy animal. The on-line course materials will be reinforced in the laboratory where skeletons, models and prosected specimen will allow the student to gain applied perspectives of the gross anatomy and normal physiology. Histologic slides, kodachromes, radiographs and live animals will also be used to enhance student understanding. Computer simulated dissection materials will also be used to provide the opportunity for the students to refine their understanding of the required information.
