Virtual Canine Anatomy
Virtual Canine Anatomy is an innovative anatomy program that has received outstanding accolades from members of the American Association of Veterinary Anatomists, students, and instructors both in the United States and internationally. Virtual Canine Anatomy enhances the students’ dissection experience and helps them learn anatomy efficiently (Linton, Schoenfeld-Tacher, Whalen, 2005). The program allows the luxury of self-paced, individualized learning and provides a focal point around which the instructor and student can exchange ideas and make interpretations of course content.
Our aim has always been to provide our programs freely on the internet and we were able to accomplish this aim with a free link to the Virtual Canine Anatomy program for a few years. While we are a nonprofit organization, we do have operational costs necessary to keep up with changes in technology so that we may continue to develop new programs. This work has been financially supported by the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS), a legacy from the CSU DVM Class of 2021, the Alternatives Research and Development Foundation, and the CVBMS College Research Council USDA Experiment Station research grant, as well as individual program purchases and donations. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, but we are no longer able to offer the Virtual Canine Anatomy version 3 (VCA3) program online for free. Nonetheless, you can still purchase this program or donate to our work. Your financial contribution will play a crucial role in enabling us to continue development our programs and hopefully provide them freely again.
If you are an educator, please contact us for free educator access to the programs and for information about academic licenses to facilitate your students’ learning experience.
