Credits: 5
Valid From:Semester 1 - 2016/17 ( September 2016 )
Module Delivered in 1 programme(s)
Module Description:This module follows on from Anatomy and Physiology 1. It completes the review of body systems of domestic mammals and introduces comparative anatomy and physiology of exotic species.
Learning Outcomes:
On successful completion of this module the learner should be able to
  1. Apply directional terms and veterinary terminology correctly.
  2. Describe the structure of the reproductive, urinary, endocrine and nervous systems of domestic species.
  3. Discuss the physiology of reproduction, excretion, homeostasis, endocrine and neurological function, relating structure to function.
  4. Discuss selected anatomical and physiological features of exotic species that vary from those of other, previously studied, domestic species.
 

Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
Structure of the male and female reproductive system:
Location of structures in the living animal; ovarian and oestrous cycle; descent of the testes and cryptorchidism; physiology of fertilization, gestation and parturition; structure and function of the mammary gland.
