The Anatomy dissection lab is on the ground floor of the lilac-coloured building and is where students do practical activities on the Veterinary Anatomy courses. It covers an area of about 150 square meters, seats 40 and can only be accessed when a teacher is present.

It has eight dissection tables: six mobile dissection tables and two dissection tables fixed aspirated for small-to-medium-sized animals. The anatomy lab has 12 sinks for students, four horizontal freezers for storing the material used during class, two portable surgical lighting units, two metal cabinets with glass doors for storing the tools and accessories used during the lessons eg individual teacher protection devices, an electric bone-cutter saw, a clipper, two ribs. It also has a roll-up tube for washing the room, one camera with a projector for transmitting images to other classrooms and a horse skeleton hanging on a wall. There is also a white board and a thin client station.

Two additional rooms lead on to the dissection room: a lab where corpses are prepared containing a mobile dissection table and a large sink with sink waste disposal for washing preparations, a chemical hood, a horizontal freezer and tool cabinets. The second room contains two large fridge/freezer cells, two vacuum cabinets for chemical reagents, a chemical hood for the fixed material, some cabinets, a photo lab and a warehouse for storing individual protective equipment used during the exercises. The dissection room is accessed via an antechamber that serves as a dressing room where students change into individual protective equipment.

Dissection room

Two Microscopy Teaching laboratories are available at the Department of Veterinary Sciences: 

  • The first with 44 good quality microscopes which are used for teaching purposes, being identical to those usually present in a veterinary clinics.
  • The second is equipped with multiple microscopes, each connected to ten binocular heads. These microscopes allow nine students to observe the same slide simultaneously, under the supervision of the instructor, who is provided with an indicator system for pointing out significant details.

These laboratories are used mostly for practical training sessions.

The necropsy lab is an area dedicated to the dissection of animal corpses and to the identification of lesions and causes of death. It seats 120 students and is equipped with 11 dissection tables: two dissection tables for large animals; seven fixed dissection tables used for medium-sized animals and exercises with organs as well as two dissection tables used for small animals.

The Department of Veterinary Sciences has two Computer Labs (located in the Lilac Building). The smaller is provided with 21 PCs for students and 1 for the instructor, the larger with 28 PCs for students and 1 for the instructor. All the PCs are standard with the same pr ograms installed. The instructor PCs, unlike the other computers, are also connected to a central video-projector system.

The Department of Veterinary Sciences is provided with a spacious and bright study area shared with the Department of the Department of Agricultural, Forest and Food Sciences. The area is composed by three halls, each with a capacity of 56 students, all facing on a little green area. In the study area students can benefit of the Internet Wire-less services and of 4 photocopy machines.In addition, a library office is located within the study area. In this office students may consult teaching materials and scientific books.

The Department of Veterinary Sciences is also provided with numerous study areas located within the Learning Center (Centro Didattico) (seating up to 134 students) and within the Department buildings (seating up to 56 students).

The osteology room is located in the Lilac building, first floor.

The osteology room covers an area of 80 m2 and can hold up to 20 people. Bones, teeth and hooves of different domestic and farm animal species are displayed in four glass showcases. Two large tables with chairs are suitable for forelimb and hindlimb bone examination. The room hosts six entire mammals’ skeletons (ox, horse, goat, swine, cat and dog), as well as a chicken skeleton, installed on moving platforms.
