Veterinarians don’t usually say words like “front, back, left, right, top or bottom” to describe different locations on an animal. That’s because those directions will change if an animal changes its position. Instead, to prevent confusion, animal doctors use other terms to describe a location on a pet.
Use this fun tool to learn the veterinary way to give “directions” on an animal.
