Cutaneous muscle of neck.
Dorsal portion of neck to lateral surface of face
scar where the umbilical cord was attached
skin- thin epidermis and thicker dermis layer
Canine-4 thoracic, 4 abdominal, 2 inguinal
Feline-4 thoracic, 2 abdominal, 2 inguinal
Unification of the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth ribs
Thin layer of loose, irregularly arranged connective tissue that often contains fat
dense, more regularly arranged thin layer of connective tissue. More fibrouls and envelops the body beneath the skin and encloses individual muscles or groups of muscles.
Can be superficial or deep fascia
dense, regularly arranged connective tissue that attaches muscle to bone
strong, flattened sheet of tissue that acts as a tendon to attach muscles to bone
a dense, fibrous connective tissue between bones, cartilage, other tissue structures or organs
thin sheet of muscle, covers most of dorsal, lateral and ventral walls of thorax and abdomen.
Innervated by lateral thoracic nerve.
supports cranial end of prepuce during non erect state and pulls prepuce back over the glans penis after erection and protrusion.
superficial pectoral muscles
Cranial part of sternum to humerus.
Smaller descending pectoral and wider transverse pectoral
deep pectoral muscle
sternum to humerus, larger and longer than superficial
superficial fascia of the neck
connective tissue, external jugular vein surrounded by it.
compound muscle from distal third of humerus, contains clavicular intersection, and divides into 2 parts as it attaches to the dorsal midline of the neck and the mastoid process of the skull.
Cleidobrachialis and cleidocephalicus (bottom and top portions, respectively)
compound muscle from sternum to head. Divides into two parts cranially, attaching at mastoid part of temporal bone and the nuchal crest of the occipital bone.
lies over the trachea, a midventral grove separates left and right sides.
Sternum to basihyoid bone.
just below the sternohyoideous, thinner and attaches from the first costal cartilage to the caudolateral surface of the thyroid cartilage
strap-like muscle from distal end of the spine of scapula to the atlas.
Advances limb and flexes neck laterally.
superficial cervical lymph nodes
below omotransversarius, located cranial to the scapula
deep fascia that contains the common carotid artery, vagosympathetic nerve trunk, internal jugular vein and the tracheal lymphatic trunk
connects dorsal aspects of all vertebral spines except cervical vertebrae
yellow elastic tissue, extends from spine of 1st thoracic vertebra to spine of the axis
median raphe of the neck
longitudinal fibrous septum between right and left epaxial muscles dorsal to the nuchal ligament. Serves as attachment for many cervical muscles
thin triangular muscles, divided into two parts by a wide aponeurosis - the cervical and thoracic parts. Median raphe of neck cervical and thoracic vertebrae to the spine of the scapula.
beneath trapezius, in 3 parts, holds dorsal border of scapula close to body. To elevate forelimb and draw scapula close to trunk.
narrow portion from cranial dorsal portion of scapula to occipital bone.
median raphe of neck to dorsal border of scapula
short and thick, connecting spines of thoracic vertebrae to dorsal border of scapula
large and roughly triangular. Caudal to scapula, covers most of dorsal and most of lateral thoracic wall. thoracolumbar fascia from lumbar vertebra to muscular attachment of ribs.
very large, fan-shaped muscle from cervical and thoracic vertebra to the dorsomedial third of the medial side of the scapula
