Canine osteology - Illustrated atlas of anatomy the bones of the dog

This veterinary anatomy module of the dog contains 218 illustrations dedicated to the canine osteology anatomy.

Here are presented scientific illustrations of the canine skeleton, with the main dog's bones and its structures displayed from different anatomical standard views (cranial, caudal, lateral, medial, dorsal, palmar..). Some of the different canine joints are labeled.

The drawings and anatomical labeling of these illustrations were done by Gauthier Kervyn, under the anatomical and scientific supervision of MD Antoine Micheau and MD Denis Hoa. 

The translation of the anatomical terms was supervised by Barbara Stockler.

These illustrations of animal anatomy are under the copyright of IMAIOS and can not be freely used.
