Skeletal, Structure, Bones, Joints, and Related Diseases

This site provides anatomy of the canine and feline (since there are some aspects universal to both). It provides terminology for both professionals and pet owners. The site explains the use of different parts of the body (an example being the tail). It goes over musculoskeletal and nervous system diseases, as well as other health problems. It uses other sites for its explanations sometimes, which can get confusing if people don’t realize they’ve been redirected. The pictures with some of its anatomical descriptions are helpful and labeled, so it’s easy to understand. It is a good reference site for quick lookup, and for individuals doing research for school, etc.
