Canine Anatomy and Physiology Course
Our canine anatomy and physiology course is designed to be an introduction to the various systems that make up the canine body.
The course is ideal for those wanting to understand how the body works and the influence various body systems have on the rest of the body. It provides a good starting point for several careers.
The canine body system continually monitors the internal environment to ensure it functions at the optimum level.
Homeostasis is the term used to describe when the body is entirely in balance. Many everyday activities or experiences can affect homeostasis. The body works to counter these changes. An example of this is when a dog becomes too hot. Various internal processes cause the dog to seek water and to pant to cool down to return the body to homeostasis.
Canine Anatomy and Physiology
Canine Anatomy is the study of the structure and relationship between a dog’s body parts. Canine Physiology studies the function of the dog’s body parts and the body of the dog as a whole.
