  Lower Digestive Tract, 2nd Edition, part 2 in the 3-book Digestive System volume, covers the small bowel and colon, and provides a concise and highly visual approach from normal anatomy and physiology through pathophysiology, diagnostics and treatment. This book in The Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations (the CIBA "Green Books") has been expanded and revised to capture current Pages: The Digestive System Anatomy. The digestive system is made up of the gastrointestinal tract which is also referred to as the GI tract or digestive tract plus it has three accessory digestive organs which are the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder. Collectively the digestive system is a group of organs working together to convert food into energy and basic nutrients to feed and power the human body.

The functions of the digestive system can be divided into 4 main categories: digestion, absorption of nutrients, motility (movement through the digestive tract), and elimination of feces.

When treating a digestive system problem, the veterinarian’s goal is to first identify the part of the system where the problem lies and then to determine.

Signs of digestive system disease can include excessive drooling, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting or regurgitation, loss of appetite, bleeding, abdominal pain and bloating, straining to defecate, shock, and dehydration.

Your cat may indicate abdominal pain by whining, meowing, and abnormal postures (for example, crouching while arching the back). Not all inclusive. Use your list to study from.

Digestion2-Overview of the digestive tract-dog, cat, horse Anatomy and Physiology 2. Summary. Wombats consume grasses and sedges which are often highly fibrous. The morphology of the digestive tract and the sequence of digestion were studied in two species of wombats from contrasting habitats: Vombatus ursinus from mesic habitats and Lasiorhinus latifrons from xeric regions.

Studies were performed on wild wombats consuming their natural winter diets, and on captive wombats fed Cited by: Below is information about the structure and function of the feline gastrointestinal tract.

We will tell you about the general structure and how the gastrointestinal tract works in cats, common diseases that affect the gastrointestinal tract, and common diagnostic tests.

Morphology of the gastrointestinal tract in primates: comparisons with other mammals in relation to diet. Chivers DJ, Hladik CM. Three categories of dietary adaptation are recognized--faunivory, frugivory, and folivory--according to the distinctive structural and biochemical features of animal matter, fruit, and leaves respectively, and the Cited by: The gastrointestinal tract (digestive tract, alimentary canal, digestion tract, GI tract, GIT) is an organ system within humans and other animals which takes in food, digests it to extract and absorb energy and nutrients, and expels the remaining waste as mouth, esophagus, stomach and intestines are part of the gastrointestinal tract.

Latin: Tractus digestorius (mouth to anus), canalis. Basic designs of digestive tracts. Notwithstanding the diversification of digestive systems caused by diversity among foods, Jumars and Penry () pointed out that most guts can be analyzed as one of three categories of ideal chemical reactors, or combinations of them: batch reactors (e.g., the gastric cavity of a hydra and the blindended cecum of a rabbit), plug-flow reactors (PFRs; e.g Cited by: Studies on the morphology of the digestive tract of fish have been conducted by several authors, from the classic works of Al-Hussaini (), Angelescu and Gneri () and Bértin (), to the more recent ones which employed more refined techniques such as histochemistry and electron microscopy, for example those of Xiong et al.

The digestive tract is, essentially, a long, hollow tube that runs through the body, from the mouth to the anus. In addition, the morphology of their digestive tract indicates that rhesus macaques are more frugivorous with digesting and absorbing more fructopyranose, whereas François' langurs are folivorous.

Pancreas is the major source for all the digestive enzymes. Amylase - digests starch. Various proteases. Lipase - digests fat. Ribonuclease - digests nucleic acids. Pancreas makes HCO 3-to neutralize the HCl from the stomach.

The morphology of mammals’ digestive tracts reflects their evolutionary adaption to different diets (Fig. The digestive tract of herbivorous mammals is generally much longer than that of carnivores [1]. The increased length – especially of the small intestine – allows for more time for the cellulose of plant.

The digestive tract includes the oral cavity and associated organs (lips, teeth, tongue, and salivary glands), the esophagus, the forestomachs (reticulum, rumen, omasum) of ruminants and the true stomach in all species, the small intestine, the liver, the exocrine pancreas, the large intestine, and the rectum and anus.

The body is able to absorb and utilize nutrients thanks to the actions of the digestive tract. The digestive tract is a tube-like muscular apparatus that responds to both sympathetic and parasympathetic stimulation in order to alter the rate at which food is processed.

This structure commences at the oral cavity, travels through the thoracic and abdominal cavities and terminates at the anus in. An additional impediment to the study of herbivorous reptiles under natural con-ditions is that many species are endangered in their native habitats, so that collection of sufficient specimens for examination of the digestive tract is difficult.

Iverson () was able to make a thorough survey of hindgut morphology in iguanine lizards. The Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations - Digestive System, Part I - Upper Digestive Tract.

The mammalian digestive system consists of the alimentary canal (complete digestive tract) and various accessory glands that secret digestive juices into the canal through the ducts.

The food is moved along the tract by the contraction of smooth muscles in the walls of the canal. These rhythmic contraction waves are called peristalsis. Chapter 25 – The Digestive System Compare the digestive tract to the accessory organs Understand the morphology of the salivary glands, teeth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine Explain the main functions of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine The digestive system consists of a muscular tube, called the digestive tract, and various accessory organs.

Most reports on the development of digestive function in the ostrich are related to the gross morphology of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) (Swart et al.

c; Cooper and Mahroze, ). The African ostrich has a longer colon than most other species within the genus (Table 2). h receptors in the rectal wall initiate a series of peristaltic contractions in the colon and rectum h receptors in the rectal wall activate parasympathetic center in the SACRAL (S2) area of the spinal cord (PELVIC NERVES).

Otherwise, the digestive systems have the same general structure as each other, and humans, as seen in the above pictures. Animals in Digestive System: How to Avoid Disease Nutritionally [Joseph, Michael] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

Animals in Digestive System: How to Avoid Disease NutritionallyAuthor: Michael Joseph. The digestive tract, from the esophagus to the anus, is characterized by a wall with four layers, or tunics.

The layers are discussed below, from the inside lining of the tract to the outside lining: The epithelium is the innermost layer of the mucosa. It is composed of simple columnar epithelium or.

Abstract. The primary function of the gastrointestinal tract is water, electrolyte, and nutrient transport. To perform this function, the epithelium lining the gastrointestinal tract is in close contact with the gastrointestinal by: A cat's teeth also play a role in digestion by tearing sharply at meats and other substances.

Much like other species, the salivary glands, esophagus, stomach, intestines, liver and kidneys work together to aid the digestive process. Cat Nervous System. A cat's nervous system is a unique part of the feline anatomy.
