1

a technique of parasitic identification that is based on the principle that the parasites’ eggs are less dense and lighter in weight than the solution in which they are mixed, which causes them to rise to the top of the solution. By placing a slide over the container in which the solution and sample are mixed, the ova will
attach to the slide. The veterinary staff can then examine them under a microscope

Fecal flotation

2

a plastic loop with slotted ends used for quick and easy fecal samples; there are commonly two loop sizes, one on each end, for large and small animals.
The loop is lubricated and slipped into the rectum for specimen collection

Fecal loop

3

the chief artery of the thigh

Femoral artery

4

the chief vein of the inner thigh

Femoral vein

5

an opening, as in the opening of the surgical drape which is where the incision is made

Fenestration

6

wild, particularly describing animals that haven't been domesticated, such as cats

Feral

7

the transmission of light signals via glass fibers

Fiberoptics

8

a flexible fiberoptic bundle with an eyepiece at one end and a lens at the other

Fiberscope

9

one of the factors essential in clot formation and is removed during the clotting process

Fibrin

10

the precursor of fibrin

Fibrinogen

11

a high-resistance wire or ribbon forming the cathode in the x-ray machine

Filament

12

also referred to as focus film distance, focal-film
distance and sometimes source-image distance (SID); the FFD is the distance between the x-ray beam source and the film. It is usually set at 36 to 40 inches (90 to 100 cm) in veterinary medicine. The FFD should be standardized to provide satisfactory beam intensity without image distortion

Film Focus Distance (FFD)

13

also known as cassettes, film holders are light-tight containers that are designed to hold x-ray films and intensifying screens in close contact. They are
meant to hold film flat and prevent the entry of daylight (and thus exposure) to the unexposed film

Film holders

14

a small, wingless, blood-sucking insect

Flea

15

several diseases can be transmitted to humans
via fleas and ticks, such as Lyme disease

Flea- and Tick-Borne Diseases

16

containing numerous shreds or fluffy particles of grayish or white mucus or other material; used of a fluid such as urine

Flocculent

17

part of the anesthesia machine that is meant to deliver a consistent flow of oxygen to the vaporizer, then into the gas outlet, to the breathing circuit (or
tubes) and finally to the patient

Flowmeter

18

the relation between the volume of fluids to be
administered and the pace at which they are administered

The flow rate of the IV catheter

19

also known simply as "strike", fly strike is a condition in which fly maggots hatch from eggs and move throughout a wound or feces ingesting any exudates, secretions, and dead cells but not the living tissue

Flystrike

20

the point where the electron beam interacts with the anode (in the x-ray machine)

Focal spot

21

liquid formaldehyde, fluid in biopsy jars that preserves the tissues placed within

Formalin

22

a chemical substance that destroys or inhibits the growth of fungi

Fungicide

23

an arthropod of the order Acarina; characterized by minute size, usually transparent or semi-transparent body, free-living or parasitic on animals or plants

Fur mites

24

feline “distemper” vaccine that vaccinates against Feline viral rhinotracheitis, calici, and panleukopenia

FVRCP
