Example text

16). 2 Incisors A common feature of all rodents are the incisors, which are characteristic for this order. 16). Since rodents have only one incisor in each jaw half, this order is also called Simplicidentata. The gnawing teeth lack roots (aradicular hypselodont), are curved in a semicircle, smooth on the surfaces and have a chiselshaped cutting edge. The maxillary incisors are always more markedly curved than the mandibular ones. Depending on the species, there can be an additional spiral curvature of the teeth.

2 Palpation Palpation focuses on swellings, asymmetries or deformations of the jaw bones and the periorbital region. Particularly the species-specific predilection sites for an ectopic displacement of the tooth apices are palpated (ventromedial and ventrolateral margins of the ­mandible, the base of the zygomatic process, preorbital maxilla).

Both species have a blood differential with a high lymphocyte count with hardly any banded neutrophil granulocytes present, so there is no “left shift” which would be typical for infections. In the case of infections, there is usually more of a shift toward the granulocytes (increase in pseudoeosinophil granulocytes).
