Hi all, I kind of have a strange request but thought that you would be the best people to ask. I work for a university and we are trying to preserve some hooves and horns for a veterinary anatomy course. For the course we need to preserve all possible tissue so it can be identifiable once completed. I have four deer hooves, four cow hooves and several cow horns. Ideally I'm looking to keep some intact and to have some as cross sections to make the bone marrow/ interior of the hoof visible. I have seen methods for dehydrating the specimens and then possibly coating them with polyurethane to help preserve them for lab use. Any tips/advice/protocols would be greatly appreciated as this is an entirely new experience for me.
