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 their structures displayed from the different anatomical standard points of view (cranial, caudal, lateral, medial, dorsal, palmar..). Some of the different canine joints are labeled.

The drawing and the anatomical labeling of these illustrations have been made by Gauthier Kervyn, under the anatomic and scientific supervision of Dr. Antoine Micheau and Dr. Denis Hoa. 

The translation of anatomical terms was supervised by Barbara Stockler.

These illustrations of animal anatomy are under the intellectual property of IMAIOS and cannot be freely used.
