Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Louise C. Abbott, PhD, DVM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is an atlas of feline gross anatomy that is organized into individual chapters on the major organ systems. Each chapter contains a significant amount of text as well as color plates diagramming the relevant anatomy of the system being described. A few radiographs are also included.
Purpose: This atlas emphasizes clinically relevant gross anatomy of the adult cat, and the authors state that this book is to used by the general practitioner as well as by veterinary students. The first chapter is particularly useful for the veterinary student or the general practitioner who does not examine cats on a routine basis.
Audience: This atlas is a very good general book for feline anatomy and should be a suitable reference for the general practitioner. Specialists will probably not find it particularly useful, because many specific details cannot be included if all systems are being covered in one volume. Similarly, this atlas will be useful as a secondary or adjunct textbook for the veterinary student, but additional details need to be acquired from other sources.
Features: The illustrations are well done with good detail, but they are not overly detailed. Some of the illustrations, particularly those of the vasculature, are rather small, and they should be enlarged. The use of color is very effective. The unusually extensive amount of written text is an effective and very constructive addition to the classic format of an atlas. The general clinical information included in the text will be particularly interesting for veterinary students. Only a few radiographs are included, and the addition of more normal radiographs would definitely be worthwhile. Relatively few references are given at the end of each chapter, but the number of references does vary with each chapter.
Assessment: There definitely is a need for a feline anatomy textbook, and this atlas is a good summary of general feline anatomy that can be used by the general practitioner and the veterinary student. The atlas is well organized and well illustrated. Although most chapters are not highly detailed, enough detail is given to be useful to the intended audience.
