Various are the alternative methods that look for the animal’s welfare in the veterinary surgery teaching, which aim to substitute the use of live animals and causing similar or superior learning to the students.
To determine the biomechanics effects depending on the intestine portions of fresh dogs’ corpses. The maximum force and elongation of duodenum, jejunum and colon rupture were tested, and compared among them so that future researches in biomechanics can know the resistance and elasticity of those three intestinal regions.
