Teeth

Mechanically breakdown food

Rectum

Liver

Produces bile, converts glucose to glycogen for storage, detoxifies absorbed digested compounds.

salivary Glands

secrete digestive enzymes to begin the breakdown of food. lubricates food to be swollowed

colon

responsible for reabsorption of water and electrolytes: produces feces

Pancreas

Produces digestive enzymes and delivers them through the pancreatic duct and duodenum

jejunum

Responsible for the majority of nutrient absorption and reabsorption of water.

ileum

continues the process of nutrient absorption and the reabsorption of water

esophagus

transports food to the stomach

duodenum

recieve chyme from the stomach along with secretory enzymes from the gallbladder and the pancreas.

Cecum

in herbivores it is larger in order to breakdown cellulose. protozoans and anaerobic bacteria responsible. Reduced in omniovores and carnivores

Stomach

Produces hydrochloric acid and pepsinogen that aid in breaking down food

Dorsal

Side closes to the backbone

ventral

side closer to the belly

caudal

closest to the tail

cranial

closest to the head

medial

closest to the middle of the pig

lateral

closest to the sides of the pig

rostral

closest to the nose of the pig

proximal

closest to the median of the body in reference to another point

Distal

farther from the body's meidan plane in reference to another point.

Frontal Plane

hamburger style

Transverse

cut between cranial and caudal

sagittal plane

hot dog style ( right left)

Visceral Pleura

Covers the lung

Visceral pericardium

covers the surface of the heart

Visceral Peritoneum

covers the surface of the intestines and stomach

Parietal Pluera

lines the lungs

Parietal pericardium

line the heart

parietal peritoneum

line the outside surface of the intestine and the stomach

Hepatic duct

connects with the cystic duct and forms the common dile duct

Where does the hepatic duct come from?

Liver

Fundus

Middle region of the stomach

Digestive Pathway

Mouth- oval cavity- pharynx-esophagus-cardial sphincter-stomach-pyloric sphincter-duodenum-jejunum-ileum-cecum-ascending colon-spiral colon-desending colon-rectum-anus
