Cranial - nostrils (nares)
Caudal - choanae (internal nares)
Nasal septum divides the nasal cavity sagitally.
What are the cranial and caudal boundaries of the choanae?
Cranial - nasal cavity
Caudal - nasopharynx
What is the bare skin around the nostrils called?
Nasal plenum
ID these regions of the nasal vestibule:
A - Dorsal nasal concha
B - Ventral nasal concha
C - Alar fold
D - Nasaolacrimal duct
What forms the external nose?
Bone and cartilage
(Incisive, maxilla, and nasal bones)
Hyaline cartilage
What are the regions of the nasal septum? Where are they located in relation to one another
Osseous, Cartilaginous, and Membranous
Bony is caudal and membranous is rostral
T or F:
Both the dorsal and ventral nasal conchae are attached to the maxilla.

What are the three major cranial sinuses in dogs and cats? Which sinus is the largest?
Frontal (largest)
T or F:
Persian cats have a reduced or absent frontal sinus
True! Stupid flat faced kitty
What structure is found within the maxillary recess?
Lateral nasal gland
T or F:
In both dogs and cats, the sphenoid sinus is only a potential cavity since it is entirely filled by an endoturbinate scroll.
False. This is true only in dogs.
