Canine Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics
This course builds the foundation required for the development of assessment skills. Students examine canine anatomy and biomechanics in relation to movement and function. Students will study in detail the ‘normal’ organization and structure of the musculoskeletal system that underpins function especially while in motion. Muscles and muscle groups described in terms of their functional anatomy: origin, insertion, innervation, vascular supply, and the actions for which the muscle group is responsible. At the end of the course, students will know the factors that contribute to stability and/or dislocations and will be able to analyze the biomechanics of movement on a structural level and recognize compensations due to physical restrictions.
