Pubis

37

Diaphragm

The thin, dome-shaped muscular structure that forms the boundary between the thoracic and abdominal cavities.

Rectus abdominis

Lies on either side of the ventral midline. Most superficial of the four.
Works with other abdominal muscles to flex the vertebral column and to assist in various body functions that require abdominal press (e.g. urination, defecation, parturition, and vomiting).

41

Transversus abdominis

Medial to the internal abdominal oblique and rectus abdominis muscles and arises from the last four to five ribs and the transverse processes of the lumbar vertebrae.

Intercostal muscles

Muscles that run in between the ribs

43

Semitendinosus

Straplike muscle at the back of the thigh (medial to biceps femoris and lateral to the semimembranosus).
It extends the hip, flexes the stifle, and extends the tarsal joints.
