Chapter 1: Dissection of Thoracic Limb (aka Forelimb)

IMPORTANT NOTE: For diagrams, more detailed information, etc., please reference Guide to the Dissection of the Dog (DG), pages 16-40 and 126-147 (8th ed.).

This chapter is split into four parts:

  • Skinning Your Cadaver
  • Extrinsic Muscles and Associated Structures
  • Proximal Thoracic Limb
  • Distal Thoracic Limb

Your mission is to work with your dissection teammates to complete all four parts of this dissection in the allotted amount of time associated with the thoracic limb dissection. All terms in bold font that are not italicized are fair game for quizzes and exams. (Italicized terms are for your information only and are not testable information.)
