Video: Inside the Online Veterinary Anatomy Museum with Mark Evans

The Online Veterinary Anatomy Museum ("OVAM") continues to mature, expand, blossom and amaze, and now British television host (and veterinarian) Mark Evans adds his two cents to the value of this web-based resource of sharable resources with this video feature.

If he looks familiar, it's because he is host of the popular series, Inside Nature's Giants, which has been aired recently in the USA, as well, on PBS. Remember the dissection of the racehorse? That was Mark Evans.

OVAM is a gift to the veterinary world and, by extension, to anyone who is interested in studying animal anatomy--or teaching it. The 3D horse's foot is a tremendous resource in itself.

I did have some jQuery errors when I was using the horse model today, so be prepared to empty caches and go through the usual steps if the player freezes. Hopefully the problem is on my computer, not everyone's.

Thanks again to the Royal Veterinary College and all the vet schools who cooperated to make OVAM possible.
