DESCRIPTION & OBJECTIVES

Course will help to improve the knowledge of students about internal structures of livestock and they will be able to identify different organs and tissues of animals. Students will be able to identify important physiological aspects of livestock

 

The key objectives/outcomes of this course are;

  • To impart basic and applied knowledge of Veterinary Anatomy.

INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES

Students will be able to identify different anatomical structures of livestock. They will be able to differentiate between the animal species on the basis of internal structures. This course will provide a complete understanding of all systems according to their structural positioning in live animals. Approach of students towards therapeutic treatments and surgical procedures for different anomalies will become easy due to proper understanding of anatomical positions of different organs in the body of animals.
