Management of fractures of the equine mandible and premaxiLLa (incisive bone).
This surface was composed of frontal, nasal, and incisive bone. As in Kagani goat [6] the frontal bone did not constitute the caudal extent of frontal surface in Markhoz goat, whereas in cattle [10], goat [11], and mithun [12] the frontal bone extended up to the caudal extent of the skull.
In dog, the bone is called the incisive bone, and is usually long because of the protruded snout (Evans & Alexander, 2012).
