Veterinary technicians must have a solid grasp of the underlying science in their field, and anatomy and physiology is a key component of the veterinary technology curriculum. CLINICAL ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY FOR THE VETERINARY TECHNICIAN is the first comprehensive work designed to cover clinically relevant A&P content. Written by veterinary technician educators at a level appropriate for students, it covers dogs, cats, horses, and cattle, integrated throughout each chapter. A separate chapter at the end of the book is devoted to birds.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marcella D Ridgway, VMD, MS, DACVIM (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This introductory textbook of comparative veterinary anatomy and physiology for veterinary technicians provides comprehensive information on traditional veterinary species and comparative material on differences and similarities between species in structure and function of body systems.
Purpose: Designed as an introductory text, the book presents mammalian physiology and anatomy at a very basic level. Concepts in anatomy and physiology are interwoven in the text to foster an understanding of the relationships between structure and function.
Audience: The book is directed to veterinary technician students and is written at a level which presumes no prior training in biological sciences. The bookmay also be useful for students with limited science backgrounds who are entering into related studies, including animal sciences and beginning veterinary students, as a springboard to more advanced books.
Features: An introduction of general concepts of cell and tissue biology begins the book. Subsequent chapters, organized by body system, describe specialized tissue structure and function. Chapters begin with an overview of the reasons a particular tissue is necessary to the body, then proceed to describe the component structures and functions that allow the tissue to meet the body's overall needs. A two-column format with topic headings in contrasting print color allows for clear presentation and easy reference. Well-constructed drawings illustrate the book and provide effective visual summaries of the written material. Specific variations in tissue structure and function among the principle veterinary species are detailed where appropriate. "Clinical Application" insets are a highly effective special feature of this book; these specific examples of clinical disorders are presented in a highlighted text box in parallel with related concepts in physiology and anatomy and help to clarify and reinforce the basic concepts as well as summarizing the practical usefulness of understanding basic science principles. Self-assessment questions are interspersed throughout the text allowing readers to evaluate their own comprehension and reinforcing the important concepts just presented. The absence of references or reading lists limits the book's usefulness for the more motivated student. A useful glossary of biological terms and a thorough index are provided at the end of the book.
Assessment: Written by veterinarians experienced in the training of veterinary technicians, this book specifically addresses the needs of the veterinary technician student for a comprehensive book addressing clinically-pertinent aspects of veterinary anatomy and physiology. Its focus on the requirements of veterinary technical training gives this text a clear advantage over the alternatives, which are limited to basic books without a veterinary focus or more advanced texts which might be inappropriately complex and require the purchase of multiple textbooks to cover both anatomy and physiology.
