Inside Our Pets



Last week at Symbiartic, Katie McKissick introduced us to some of our furry friends’ interiors with Beautiful on the Inside. Featuring X-rays of a dog, cat, ferret, and guinea pig, she gave us a glimpse into the inner workings of man(and woman!)’s best friends.

On the above X-ray of Ziggy the guinea pig, you’ll notice some bubbles in his abdominal area. Those are gas pockets–evidence of the guinea pig’s very active gastrointestinal tract.
