Flashcards in Final - Lab part Deck (50)
Smooth articular surface on the cranial surface of the distal end in which the patella rides
The trochlear groove is the concave surface where the patella (kneecap) makes contact with the femur. Also called the 'trochlea'
the bone of the upper arm or forelimb, forming joints at the shoulder and the elbow
Frog on a horse
The frog is a part of a horse's hoof, located on the underside, which should touch the ground if the horse is standing on soft footing. The frog is triangular in shape.
Metacarpal/Metatarsal III in horses and Metacarpal/Metatarsal III and IV in cows
Long, tube-shaped bone in the lower leg of a horse or other large quadruped, between the fetlock and the knee or hock.
Large hole in the occipital bone through which the spinal cord exits the skull
Main weight-bearing bone of lower hind leg.
Forms the stifle joint with the femur proximal to it and the hock with the tarsus distal to it
Spine of scapula
The prominent triangular ridge on the dorsal aspect of the scapula.
One of the two bones (radius is the other) that form the antebrachium (forearm). Ulna forms a major portion of the elbow joint with the distal end of the humerus.
One of a pair of large holes in the pelvis located on either side of the pelvic symphysis.
Lightens the pelvis.
The point of the hock
The liver is located in the cranial part of the abdomen.
The colon is located in the lower abdomen
Canine tooth #304
Lower left quadrant (large fang)
The spleen is located near the stomach in the left forward part of the abdomen. The exact location of the spleen depends upon its size and shape and is affected by the size of the surrounding organs, such as the fullness of the stomach.
Female cats have two uterine horns. Uterine body is found just above the bladder.
Joint between the femur and the tibia (in humans, the knee joint)
First cervical vertebra. Forms the atlanto-occipital joint with the occipital bone of the skull and the atlantoaxial joint with the axis, the second cervical vertebra.
Long bones of axial skeleton that form the lateral walls of the thorax.
Solid structure formed by fusion of sacral vertebrae.
Sacrum forms a joint with the pelvis on each side called the sacroiliac joint.
One of the two bones (the ulna is the other) that form the antebrachium (forearm). The radius is usually the main weight-bearing bone.
Indentation on the caudal surface of the humerus just proximal to the condyle, which the anconeal process of the ulna tucks into when the elbow is extended.
Socket part of the ball-and-socket shoulder joint
Kneecap, largest sesamoid bone in body
Rides on top of the trochlear groove, held in place by the cruciate ligaments
The ball-and-socket joint formed by the head of the femur and the cup-shaped cavity of the hipbone (also known as the acetabulum).
Pubic or pelvic symphysis
The two halves of the pelvis joined ventrally by a cartilaginous joint
Two halves of the mandible are separate bones in dogs, cats and cattle that are joined by a cartilaginous mandibular joint
The bones of the tail portion of the spinal column
Bony arches below and behind the eyes of common domestic animals.
In dogs and cats they form the widest part of the skull.
A thin bone located beside the tibia in the lower leg region of the pelvic limb
