3D Skeletons and Skulls (CC BY)
A collection of 3D CT scans of a variety of wild and domestic animal skeletons and skulls.
Animal Learning Theory Lecture (CC BY)
Presentation slides for a lecture on basic learning theory for teaching Animal Behaviour created by Dr Ralph R.J. Thompson from the Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare Education at The University of Edinburgh. It’s intended as a basis for lectures, to which images/graphics can be added and the lecture adapted for the purposes needed. The use of a coloured background to aid accessibility may benefit some students. Reflective/class questions are shown in light blue. Addition of other reflective or class response questions to check understanding and promote engagement is recommended.
Atlas of Renal Lesions in Proteinuric Dogs (CC BY-NC-ND)
The goal of this Renal Pathology Atlas is to provide teaching material to veterinary pathologists and nephropathologists. The atlas demonstrates the breadth of lesions that can occur within a cohort of dogs presenting with the clinical sign of protein loss in the urine. Kidney samples were examined with multiple modalities including: histopathology, immunofluorescence and electron microscopy. Integration of these comprehensive evaluations with the clinical history can help veterinary pathologists and nephrologists to better understand the etiology and prognosis of renal lesions in proteinuric dogs.
Veterinary Epidemiology: Principles and Methods (CC BY-NC-ND)
Veterinary Histology (CC BY-NC)
This open textbook focuses on conveying the basic material required for understanding the microscopic anatomy to better understand the disease processes that they will learn later in the curriculum. Included is a basic overview of veterinary histology of commonly reviewed organ systems, with the goal of illustrating important concepts of cells, tissues, and organs in a manner that we hope is not only accessible to first-year veterinary students, but serves as a reference for clinical medicine and pathology.
Small Animal Handling Videos (CC BY-NC-ND)
A series of videos demonstrating the best ways to handle small animals.
