The dog is a kind of spiritual animal, which has been domesticated by humans for thousands of years. It has a keen sense of smell, quick action, understanding and loyal to its master. In many countries, all kinds of beautiful dogs have already become the most popular family pets. Research on the relationship between communication and behavior shows that small cats show significant consistency in odor marking and social behavior. Odor marking behavior may not only play a role in storing information odor, but also the transmission mode of odor can make visual communication behavior obvious. There was no significant difference in the size of acini between cats and dogs. Except rabbit, human parotid gland acini is the smallest; The acini of human submandibular gland is larger than that of rodent and smaller than that of other animals. There is no significant difference between animals and human except that the acini of sublingual gland of rabbit is obviously smaller and that of sheep is obviously larger.
