Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gerald J. Pijanowski, DVM, MS, PhD (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This fifth edition text is divided into six sections of 353 pages of text, a page of basic references, and an index. The fourth edition was published in 1996.
Purpose: The authors' stated purpose is "... to facilitate a thorough dissection of the dog to learn basic mammalian structure and specific features of the dog." That purpose is served extremely well in this text, just as it was in the previous editions.
Audience: This book can be used by anyone with a need to know basic mammalian, or specifically basic canine, anatomy. This wide audience includes high school teachers, undergraduate students, veterinary students, veterinarians at all levels, and medical researchers. The authors are internationally respected authorities in the world of anatomy.
Features: Basic mammalian anatomy is presented, using the dog as a model. The material is presented in a hybrid of systems and regional anatomy. The limbs are covered in several sections while the thorax, abdomen, and head are each covered in separate sections.
Assessment: The authors continue to serve their wide and varied audience well. Many new illustrations have been added and a number of older ones enhanced. There are no major changes to the text, just revisions to confusing wording and correction of a few errors. While these may seem to be small changes, they will enhance the teaching value of the book. It continues to be the leader in the field.
