Which Way is Up?

Jun 1, 2016 3:06PM

How do veterinarians describe a location on an animal? Veterinarians can’t just say “right” or “left” because their patients are constantly moving and everything is constantly changing. So they have their own terms that they use and these terms work no matter what a pet does.

In the “Veterinary Basics” section of Vet Set Go, we just posted a fun tool that will help you learn these terms yourself. The new “Anatomical Directions” article contains a fun, easy to use program that shows you the anatomical directions that veterinarians use to describe different locations on a pet. The tool lets you work with a dog, cat or horse as your patient.

So pick your favorite patient and start learning anatomical directions right now!
