Abstract:
Present study was conducted on skin of six adult dogs i.e. two Labrador and four non-descriptive breeds of dogs. The skin was divided into three layers viz., epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. Epidermis was lined by keratinized stratified squamous epithelium in both Labrador and non-descriptive breeds. Epidermis consisted of stratum basale, stratum Spinosum, stratum Granulosum and stratum corneum from interior to exterior. Melanin pigment was present in stratum basale. Clear cells were present in non-descriptive breeds but they were absent in Labrador. The thickness of the epidermis in Labrador is maximum in dorsal neck whereas in non-descriptive breed maximum in ventral neck.
