The digestive system of pigeon includes alimentary canal and digestive glands. This system helps in nutrition. In comparison to the size of the bird, the length of the alimen­tary canal is short and its different parts are modified in such a way that assimilation of simplified food occurs in a short time.

A pig's digestive system is composed of 5 parts, namely the mouth, esophagus, stomach, the intestines. When the pig consumes food, it is first chewed in the mouth.

The saliva secreted by the mouth helps to soften as well as moisten the food. In addition, the saliva has an enzyme that helps to begin the digestion of the starch contained in the.

Conditions affecting the gastrointestinal tract occur in pigs of all ages. Enteric diseases substantially compromise production efficiencies and profitability of pig production globally.

Different forms of fiber in the diet can influence the composition and metabolic activity of the large intestinal microflora in pigs. The book is an attempt to bring together the diverse literature on digestion in the pig scattered over many fields of interest and written in many languages by agricultural scientists, physiologists, biochemists and pharmacologists.

Nine chapters deal successively with dimensions of the gastrointestinal tract, passage of feed, conditions in the lumen of the gut, hormones, secretion, digestion. This was a general discussion of the digestive tract of the pig.

In considering the structure of young embryos we traced the walling in of the primitive gut tract by entoderm, its regional division into fore-gut, mid-gut, and hind-gut, and the establishment of the oral and anal openings by the breaking through of the stomodaeal depression.

The digestive system, or the alimentary canal, in the horse is about ft long from the mouth to the anus (Fig. ).The entire tract can be divided into two functional parts: the foregut and the hindgut (Table ).The foregut functions in a manner similar to that of simple stomached animals such as the pig.Digestive System ANS Physiology and Anatomy of Domesticated Animals I.
