VETS 2014 - Anat & Phys of Sm Animals, 4 Credits

Prerequisite(s): VETS 1214 with D or better and VETS 1203 with C or better

Level: Lower

Course Attributes: Liberal Arts and Science

Anatomy and Physiology of small animals is a continuation of the study of anatomy and physiology which began using the organ system in VETS 1214 Large Animal Anatomy and Physiology. This course uses both companion and laboratory animals as the models on which we complete the discussion of the normal anatomy and physiologic function of animals. The course provides a functional integration of basic science and clinical information as it relates to the healthy animal in an integrated lecture and laboratory approach. Histological slides, kodachromes, and radiographs will also be utilized to enhance organ recognition and understanding of organ function. The students will explore in greater depth and detail the course materials through questions and discussions fostered by the development of group Power Point presentations on topics that are related to organ system studied.
