This package contains six female reproductive tract videos that may be streamed at any time for 365 days (from date of purchase).
- Female Reproductive Tubes
- Estrous Cycle
- Changes During the Estrous Cycle
The Ovary video introduces the female reproductive tract by examining the structure of the ovary, follicular development, ovulation, post-ovular development, and follicular atresia. Includes discussion on the secretion of testosterone, estrogen, inhibin, prostaglandin, and relaxin by the various ovarian/follicular structures.
Note: The video uses feline, canine, bovine, equine, and porcine ovaries.
The Female Reproductive Tubes video examines the structures and functions of the tubular organs of domestic animals including the oviduct/uterine tube, uterus, cervix, vagina, and vestibule. Includes discussion on the transport of the ovum through the oviduct.
The Estrous Cycle video discusses the estrous cycle in domestic animals by examining cycling patterns and changes in the ovary, uterus, vagina, and vulva. Includes examination of canine vaginal smears.
The Changes During the Estrous Cycle video discusses the histological changes of the female reproductive system (ovary, uterus, vagina, vulva), estrous cycle of the mammal, and examines canine vaginal smears.
The Placentation video discusses the function of placenta, examines placentation (attachment of the fetal membranes and endometrium), and considers placental classification while examining examples amongst domestic species. All specimens used in the video were acquired as incidental findings post-mortem.
The Mammary video discusses the general structure and development of the mammary gland, morphology and function of the alveoli, microscopically examines the ducts and structures of the tea, and summarizes the milk letdown process.
