A Regional Approach to the Dissection of the Dog

Chapter Reviews  (chapter 02)

The students will have an opportunity to perform mock surgical approaches to the long bones of the limb (radius and humerus), practice suturing of the skin, and complete a mock amputation of the thoracic limb. Once the right thoracic limb is removed, it should be used to revisit the muscles and nerves of the scapular, brachial and antebrachial regions, perform mock surgical approaches to the shoulder joint and elbow joint, and examine the deep muscles of the manus.

  •  To gain an understanding of how the various joints of the limbs move, the major muscles responsible for such movement and the nerves and blood vessels that supply them. This information forms the foundation for evaluating various peripheral neuropathies that may result in sensory or motor deficits that must be evaluated in a systematic manner.
