I am considering completing pre reqs through Portage on line. Need to know if A and P II requires you to dissect an animal. I know most local colleges require you to dissect an animal that they supply by sending through the mail. Would like to know if Portage is the same before I sign up.

Dissecting a cat was required in my A&P II class and it was pass or fail.

Me neither. I did have to cut a sheep's brain and an eye, though.

We had to dissect a cat. He was missing a tooth, so I called him Gappy hahahaha

It depends on how the class is taught at your school. Some schools can't afford specimens for dissection and some use virtual labs. Read the course description. It usually says there, or your can call the department office and ask.

We were supposed to do cat dissection, but there was a cat shortage. So they used leftover cats from the last semester and we had to identify parts during exams.

We had human cadavers in my A&P course. All classes are different.

We had minks, we were told they were cheaper for the school to get than cats.

Our online class had a virtual cadaver lab. No animals.
