Coloured organ specimen: An efficient tool in veterinary anatomy education
Saini S, Saini J and Khichar K
The museum in veterinary anatomy holds significant importance as it provides students with access to bones, wet specimens, models, charts, and dry specimens, thereby enhancing their interest and facilitating knowledge dissemination. In this study, we employed a colouring technique using acrylic paints, enamel paint, and transparent nail paint to highlight arteries, veins, nerves, and other structures in gross specimens. These coloured specimens were then preserved in jars filled with formalin. The colouring method not only enhances the visual appeal of the wet specimens but also actively engages students in the learning process, facilitating improved retention of information. The painted wet specimens remained stable in a 10% formalin solution without any noticeable changes in colour, making them valuable resources for studying and gaining a better understanding of the various organs within the animal body.
