Basic Veterinary Sciences


General Description

Veterinary anatomy is a branch of science concerned with the bodily structure of animals. To perform surgical operations or medical treatment or even in animal husbandry field, it is essential to understand the anatomy of animals. In light of this information, our main principal is to make students learn and understand the anatomical structures of domestic mammals and poultry animals comparatively and to train veterinarians with sufficient anatomy knowledge.


Dissecting room, cadaver preparation room, cold storage room, cadaver preparation, bone maceration room and research laboratory is present in our department. A stereo microscope attached with digital camera is used for subgross studies.


We use systematic and topographic methods in anatomy courses. Anatomy-I course is given in 1st semester and is aimed to teach fundamental anatomical terminology, locomotor system and nervous system. Anatomy-II course is given in 2nd semester and is aimed to teach the shape, structure, normal position of internal organs and relationship between them, morphological features of circulatory system organs and sense organs. Entire body is examined and students gain basic anatomical understanding for clinical interventions in the Topographic Anatomy course, which was given in the 5th semester.


Research Interests

We have been working on the anatomies of laboratory and wild animals, teratology, anatomical changes from embryo to adult and racial differences between species. For this purpose, techniques such as corrosion cast, lymphography, angiography, arthrography is being used.

General Description

Biochemistry is a branch of biological sciences concerned with the chemical and physico-chemical processes and substances which occur within living organisms. We aim to provide basic and clinical biochemistry knowledge to veterinary candidates by following the latest developments in science and technology and contribute them to be prepared for further clinical veterinary sciences. We also provide routine clinical biochemistry laboratory services and to search for solutions of livestock problems in the region. There is a practice laboratory for students and a research laboratory present in our department.

Biochemistry-I (1st semester), Biochemistry-II (2nd semester), Clinical Biochemistry and Haemotology (9th semester) and Diagnostic Laboratory Methods (10th semester) courses are given to undergraduate students.


Research Interests

Antioxidative metabolism, acute phase proteins, neurosteroids, biochemistry of nervous system, glycoproteins, electrophoretic analysis, western blot studies, biochemistry of bees, biochemistry analysis of honey, heavy metal analysis are some of our research topics.

General Description

Physiology is a branch of biological sciences that deals with the normal functions of living organisms and their parts. Physiology-I course is given 2nd semester and main objectives of this course are to teach students how nervous, sensory, muscle, blood, heart, circulation and respiratory system and cell physiology works. The second course (Phsiology-II), which is given in 3rd semester, covers the physiology of digestive and endocrine system, reproduction and lactation, body fluids, metabolism and ambient temperature adaptation. A research laboratory located in our department both for students and scientific studies.



Research Interests

Hematological parameters and factors that affect hematological parameters, reproductive physiology in farm animals, hormones related to reproduction are some of our research topics.

General Description

Histology&Embryology is a branch of biological sciences deals with the study of tissues and cells and with the formation, development, structure, and functional activities of embryos.

Histology-I (1st semester), Histology-II (2nd semester) and Embryology (2nd semester) courses are given to undergraduate students.
