In humans, the arch of the aorta has three main branches that deliver blood to the head and arms. The cat only has two vessels that branch directly from the aorta. Many of the cat diagrams will show the following diagram to help you locate the brachiocephalic …
The chest cavity of the cat is opened to reveal the major veins that branch from the heart. Shown in blue are the superior vena cava, the brachiocephalic, subclavian and the internal and external jugular veins.
Photo of the heart of a cat shows the major vessels: aorta, brachicephalic, common carotid, subclavian, and coronary vessels.
This video shows the heart and the major vessels that branch from it on a dissected cat. The superior vena cava, aorta, subclavian, and brachiocephalic vessels are shown clearly to help students identify them on their own specimens.
