This book is intended to provide one detailed guide to the dissection of the major domestic large animal species covered in most veterinary professional programs: horse, ox, goat, and sheep. While veterinary students are the intended users, it may also be useful for students in animal science and graduate programs.

Anatomy can be daunting because of the vast number of terms and structures needing to be mastered; therefore, to make this guide as well-organized and user friendly as possible it provides clear dissection instructions and illustrations to help students work as efficiently and productively as possible. This guide will provide students with answers “at their fingertips” to questions that arise while dissecting.
