Within the past two decades, the scope of veterinary anatomy instruction has been broadened to include not only the detailed study of the horse, but also that of each of the domesticated animals as well. However, the over-all trend throughout the country has been to decrease the allotted time for dissection. This has resulted in a wide discrepancy between the vast amount of material that each student is expected to master and the time which is allotted him to accomplish this feat. Today, we are attempting to teach the anatomy of more than half a dozen animals in less time than was formerly allotted to the horse alone.
