Macro- and microdissection methods together with conventional histology and lectin immunohistochemistry have been used to identify the course of the vomeronasal nerves and their site of termination (accessory olfactory bulb; AOB) in the dog. The AOB in this species is small and variable in size, situated on the medial surface of the main olfactory bulb, and has an anatomical structure unlike that described for other mammals. The vomeronasal nerves and their terminal glomeruli in the AOB are easily identifiable by selective immunohistochemical staining using Ulex europeus agglutinin I. © 1992 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
