This course provides students with a sound working knowledge of mammalian anatomy. Topographical, applied and clinical anatomy of the cat and dog are presented with emphasis placed on the relationship between anatomical structure and function. Functional adaptation in mammals will be explored by comparative study of common domestic animals: cat, dog, cow, and horse. A review of avian species will provide further understanding of structure and function. A group trip to the Museum of Natural History in New York City may be a required component of the curriculum.
