Virtual Canine Anatomy

Virtual Canine Anatomy is available online for free here. It 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 is to provide all of our programs freely on the internet to enhance anatomical learning while reducing the need for canine, feline, and equine cadavers. Your donation will help us realize this goal. You can view examples of Virtual Canine Anatomy, make a donation, or inquire about purchasing Virtual Canine Anatomy using the links on the left.
