"Diarrhea, some people think it’s funny but it’s really wet and runny."
We focused on the respiratory system today in necropsy. One of the lung tumors was from from TVT or transmissible venereal tumor. it started in the nasal cavity went to lymph nodes and then to lungs.
Canine Transmissible Venereal Tumor is kind of a unique tumor. It is transmissible between two dogs, typically during copulation. It is really common in Grenada. Tumors are usually on the genitals. It doesn’t typically metastasize.
So they guess this dog inhaled the tumor cells and developed a tumor within its nose!
This is just a jotting down of notes from my tablet. Not really useful for studying purposes but it makes me keep listening during path lab.

Horse limbs are crazy. Ca-razy. Sometimes you forget because it’s been 3 years since you dissected one in first year anatomy but let me tell, that all comes back around. In hopes of somewhat retaining what I learned this block, I’m going to make some posts explaining limbs and the kind of diseases and treatments we see in different areas of the limbs. It’s too late to do it right this instant but that’s why the gods of vet school invented off blocks! Until then!
Oh. God. Not the litter boxes!
