VETERINARY ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY Course Description This course is designed to give students knowledge of the basic anatomy and physiology of animals. The basic species include the horse, cow, swine, sheep, dog, and cat. Important species differences are described. Terminology is an important part of the course. 3 Cr (1 lect/pres, 2 lab, 0 other) Course Focus Basic comparative anatomy and physiology of animals for students with major in animal health careers Text and References Anatomy and Physiology of Farm Animals; R.D. Frandson / T.L. Spurgeon; 5 th edition; Lea & Febiger; Philedelphia Course Goals The following list of course goals will be addressed in the course. These goals are directly related to the performance objectives (Addendum A).
