Dog Skeleton Alana Ericson
Vet Science What does the skeletal system do? -The skeletal system is built to support the weight of the body.
-The skeleton helps to protect vital organs.
-Along with the bones, muscles are attached to the bones to help the body move.
-Also consists of joints, cartilages, and ligaments.
-The Skeletal System is divided, one part is called the Axial Skeleton and the other the Appendicular Skeleton. Horse Dog Horse Skeletal System -Consists of 205 Bones
-Atleast 34 bones in the skull, 18 in the tail, and 18 pairs (36) in the ribcage.
-The Coffin Bone, and the Short and Long Pastern bones help to make up the hoof.
Axial Skeleton -The axial skeleton is the part of the body that consists if the skull, ribs, vertebrae, and sternum.
-It protects the vital organs such as brain, heart, and lungs. Appendicular Skeleton -The appendicular skeleton consists of the limbs, shoulder girdle and also pelvis girdle
Horse Skeletal System:
-Horses have evolved to have something called a "stay apparatus". What is does is it helps a horse sleep standing up. The tendons and ligaments in the front legs are placed so the horse can relax and not fall. The hind leg however, to do this the horse must rotate its hip and hook one bone up and over another bone, which can be a problem because sometimes the patella (knee) can get locked. -Some breeds of horses, such as some Arabian horses, only have 17 pairs of ribs instead of 18. -80 out of the 205 bones a horse has are located in the legs.

- Atleast 12 pairs (24) in the ribcage, and the bones in the tails vary. Fun Facts
Dog Skeletal System http://www.petplace.com/dogs/structure-and-function-of-the-tail-in-dogs/page1.aspx -Dog's shoulder blades are not tightly connected to the rest of the skeleton so it is more flexible.
-The shape and size of bones vary in the breed of a dog
-The bones in a dog may vary between because of the number of bones in its tail, although all dogs have at least 318 bones. http://voices.yahoo.com/18-interesting-facts-dog-biology-8504391.html?cat=53 http://jackmorrison.hubpages.com/hub/Dog-Skeleton http://www.dogster.com/files/vet-tail-EDIT.jpg http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/images12/Rottweilerbear1year.JPG http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/ce/2008-07-11_White_German_Shepherd_pup_chilling_at_the_Coker_Arboretum.jpg/800px-2008-07-11_White_German_Shepherd_pup_chilling_at_the_Coker_Arboretum.jpg http://puppydogweb.com/gallery/basenjis/basenji_hill.jpg My Horse :) My Dog :)
