    Posted on December 28, 2007, under Veterinary Book

    Color Atlas Of Veterinary Anatomy Volume 3 The Dog And Cat

    In this book, Dr. Done and his colleagues at the Royal Veterinary College in London have produced beautiful picture atlas of canine gross anatomy. The book is primarily made up of hundreds of excellent-quality highly detailed photographs depicting dissection of a canine cadaver. Each photograph is accompanied by a brief description of the view and a labeled line drawing identifying structures visible in the photograph. The bulk of the atlas treats canine anatomy by a regional approach, starting with the head and progressing to the pelvis. The first chapter contains a very useful depiction of surface anatomy and its relationship to the boney skeleton (juxtaposition of photographs of a live dog with a skeleton is an outstanding way to teach palpable landmarks); radiographic anatomy accompanies these sections. The last chapter addresses feline anatomy in an abbreviated format similar to the canine anatomy.

    Posted on October 21, 2011, under Tutorial

    If you have a dog these are some tips that will save your money visit your veterinarian.

    The Eyes

    general diseases in dogThe surface of the eye (cornea) should be clear. The center of the eye (pupil) should respond to light. You can see a light in your pets’ eyes light up and constricts the pupil. The right and left pupils should be equal.

    The pink tissue around the eye called the conjunctiva. It is normally a light pink color. In infections, it will be a darker pink and the eyes to produce a white or greenish discharge. There are a number of home remedies to treat conjunctivitis.

    The ears

    Your dog should shake your head, if he might have an ear infection.

    The outside of the ear (pinna) should be a light pink and its palpate should be flat. Any thickening could indicate an ear infection, allergy or a blood blister in the ear (ear hematoma).

    The inside of the ear (ear canal) should be easy to find and free of discharge. A small amount of light yellow discharge is probably normal wax. Any foul smelling odor indicates an infection. A yellowish discharge often has a yeast infection. Hard black deposits indicate likely your cats ears to ear mites. If dirt and odor are present, then clean your pets’ ears.


    Check for any signs of discharge from the right or left nostril. The occasional clear discharge is normal for some animals, but continuous discharge indicates a problem, like an allergy.

    Your pet can benefit from a hypoallergenic diet, which can be bought commercially. Alternatively you can make home diet, you make yourself. Whatever food you choose, they must be fed for 12 weeks.

    If after 12 weeks your pet it still scratching, then it is probably not a food allergy.

    The Mouth

    Pay special attention to creases in the lower lip large breed dogs with lots of extra skin. If saliva accumulates, then wipe the area with an antiseptic such as pharmaceuticals Biotene.

    Pick up your pets lips and examine their teeth. The gums should appear a healthy pink color (except in breeds such as Chows with dark pigment). Pay special attention to the area where the teeth begin.

    Inflamed gums appear a darker red and may bleed even if you touch them. This is a sign of gingivitis and may mean your pet needs a dental cleaning.

    The neck

    Palpate the base of the jaw and the beginning of the neck. In this section you can view the corner of the lower jaw (mandible). You should be able to feel the parotid gland and submandibular lymph nodes. In a healthy animal, most of the time you do not feel anything in this field.

    Each lymph node swelling is serious, you have your veterinarian look for what caused the swelling. It is very important to catch the signs early. Your pet can benefit from some immune stimulation.
