Newly updated to reflect the latest terminology, this best-selling text now features numerous new and revised pedagogical features that make it an excellent resource both in the classroom and for self-study. Brand-new additions include several new appendices, new anatomical drawings, and a more extensive index. Many sections have been completely rewritten for consistency and greater reader comprehension, and review sections now include more thought-provoking questions and multiple-choice tests.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Lyne Marie Ross
This book is an adaptation of Learning Medical Terminology by Austrin and Austrin and has concentrated on veterinary terminology that is used with domestic animals. This paperback book includes many exercises and reviews for the student in its 22 chapters. There are several crossword puzzles, hidden word puzzles, and black-and-white pictures that make this book unique. The author succeeds at targeting students in introductory courses in veterinary science, veterinary technology, and related fields. Although this book is targeting students new to the field of veterinary medicine, often it is lacking in the appropriate depth of the subjects covered. The book includes many black-and-white illustrations that are appropriately referenced. The table of contents is quite sufficient and is a useful guide for navigating the book. The overall appearance of this book is adequate for its purposes. A unique feature of the book is the many puzzles it contains, including crossword puzzles and hidden word puzzles. The useful reviews and exercises help set this book apart and make the book worthwhile for self-study by nontraditional students. I recommend this book to students in veterinary technology programs or to students in preveterinary curriculums. It is not recommended to students in a veterinary program.

An adaptation of Learning Medical Terminology for veterinary students teaching terminology through description, diagrams, exercises, and even crossword puzzles. The effective, fun volume presents the basic foundations of veterinary terminology, progressing to animal skeletal, muscular, and integumetary systems. The internal mechanisms of the body are comprehensively covered, including the immune system, and the concluding sections focus on special terminology in the equine, laboratory, swine, cattle, and dog and cat breeding industries.
