VETERINARY ANATOMY RESOURCES 

Below you will find visual veterinary anatomy online materials, developed by top universities worldwide. As a medical illustrator, having reliable and high quality visual references is of upmost importance. I wanted to share these materials with you, whether you are a fellow medical artist, veterinarian or student. I hope they are as useful to you as they have been to me. 

The list is organised by animal species and incudes visual references, from general anatomy to neurology and imaging. I do not own rights to any of the content present in the links below. When referencing these materials, credit should be made to their original creators.

If you have suggestions for more resources, or if you spot any broken link, please get in touch
