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 not for profit organization, we do have operational costs necessary to keep up with changes in technology and so that we may continue to develop new programs. 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. As a non-profit entity, your financial contribution will play a crucial role in enabling us to continue development our Veterinary Educational Tools and hopefully provide them freely again.
