"R" - Reflexes (非條件反射)

Assessing Reflexes are part of our assessment of the neurological system.

Reflexes cannot be controlled, they are a response to a message that goes to the level of the spinal cord and back so we can gain a good understanding of the current neurological status of our animal. An example is the patella reflex- we do this in animals too.Reflexes cannot be controlled, they are a response to a message that goes to the level of the spinal cord and back so we can gain a good understanding of the current neurological status of our animal.

測試非條件反射動作是評估神經系統中重要的一環。神經訊號首先由感受器(如手指)發出,再經過延髓或脊髓,不經過大腦直接傳遞到作用器(手肌肉)。我們可以藉由測試清楚了解動物神經系統的現狀。其中一個例子是膝跳反射(擊打膝蓋,小腿會向上),與人類的相似。

"D" - Disc (椎間盤)

The bony spine is to encase the spinal cord which caries messages from the brain to the body. The discs give it the mobility for the pet to move.
