Sometimes it seems as if a vet is speaking a foreign language, I thought other members of the forum may find this information helpful, if you hear or see these common prefixes before a word this is what they relate to:

Arterio - Arteries
Hypo- Decreasd
Arthr - Joints
Infra - Below
Chondro- Cartilage
Neuro - Nervous system
Derm - Skin
Osteo - Bones
Endo - Inside
Peri - Adjacent to
Epi - on top of
Poly - mutiple
Gastr - Stomach
Pyo - Pus
Haem - Blood
Sub - Below
Hyper - Increased
Supra - Above
Hypo - decreased
Infra - below
Neuro - nervous system
Osteo - bones
peri - adjacent to
poly - multiple
Pyo - pus
Sub - below
Supra - above



and after a word they mean:
-itis - inflammation
-oscopy - visual examination
-ostomy - making an opening into
-otomy - incising into/through

You never know when this might come in useful,
