Please read the following
1. I ask that you not attempt to remove my copyright stamp from any of the photos under any circumstance.
2. The full size pics are high-resolution images. The compressed (JPEG) file size of each is between 1 and 3 MB, and each will require the better part of 16 MB of free RAM to open. This may be an issue on older computers with limited RAM. The advantage of downloading these moderately large files, however, is that they can be zoomed in on quite a bit before pixelation becomes a problem. Want to take a closer look at that blood vessel branch? Just click the zoom in button one or more times in the picture viewer included with your computer's operating system and use the scroll bars to home in. These images should be viewable on any modern computer. If they aren't, and you're not computer savvy enough to pry open the images with some available application, you're out of luck. But hey, what did you pay for them?
3. I developed these images primarily as an aide to NCCC A&P students. Because of this not all body systems are represented, as we only use the cats in A&PII. A&P students from other colleges are welcome to use them, but those who use the cats extensively in A&PI will obviously be missing some systems.
4. NCCC STUDENTS READ THIS LINE! When I labeled these images I pretty much tagged every structure that I could easily identify. THIS MEANS THAT THERE ARE A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF THINGS THAT I HAVE IDENTIFIED THAT YOU ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR KNOWING IN THIS CLASS! This will probably be most apparent when studying the blood vessels. I do not wish to cause NCCC A&P students undue consternation by implying in any way by my labeling that you are responsible for knowing every single thing labeled on these diagrams. Please refer to your instructor's lists of required structures.
5. DISCLAIMER-these are really good, clean dissections. I spent hours removing facia, adipose, nerve fibers, etc. If you want your cats to look as nice you will need to put in a lot of time and have great patience. Your lab instructor is going to assemble your lab exams using student-dissected cats. Don't expect them to look this pretty. Some of them might, but most of them will not. Please don't whine within your instructor's earshot about how the practical wasn't fair because of this.
