Inside Veterinary Anatomy

Veterinary anatomy is the study of the internal biological structures and systems of animals, including the respiratory, cardiovascular, reproductive and neurological systems. Undergraduate programs in veterinary technology and animal science often include animal anatomy classes. Programs in veterinary medicine typically include radiographic anatomy courses, in which students learn to take X-rays of bone and soft tissue.

Veterinary technologists usually need to complete a 4-year program; aspiring veterinarians must earn a doctorate in veterinary medicine. Most animal care takers, including pet groomers and animal shelter workers, receive on-the-job training. Aspiring zookeepers may need to earn a bachelor's degree in animal science or biology.
