Overview

Saunders Veterinary Anatomy Coloring Book includes approximately 300 illustrations to study and color. The coloring book helps you memorize the anatomy content you need to know in both veterinary medicine and veterinary technology and gives you a fun way to review the information you have studied. All illustrations in the book are suitable for coloring and are of the highest quality, created by expert medical illustrators.

Organized by body region, the book is divided into sections devoted to the head and neck; neck, back, and vertebral column; thorax; abdomen; pelvis; forlimb; and hindlimb.

Numbered lead lines clearly identify structures to be colored and correspond to a numbered list beneath the illustration so you can easily visualize the veterinary anatomy. Plus, you can create your own "color code" using the numbered boxes provided for each illustration.

• Comprehensive veterinary anatomy coverage helps you reinforce your understanding of canine, feline, equine, porcine, ruminants, and avian anatomy.
• High quality illustrations make it easy for you to color in each anatomic region and review anatomic details.
• Self-study format provides a fun and interactive way to prepare for exams throughout your veterinary courses.
• Part of Elsevier’s complete veterinary anatomy learning system, integrating core anatomy knowledge, engaging review, hands-on practice, and clinical application to give you a solid foundation for success!

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jackie M Wypij, DVM, MS (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This coloring book with detailed illustrations and selected species comparisons is an excellent review for the veterinary anatomy student.
Purpose: This is a study tool designed to help students of veterinary anatomy by providing fun and informative exercises. This is an excellent supplemental resource if used as intended and meets the objectives.
Audience: Designed for veterinary or veterinary technician students studying veterinary anatomy, this book uses the dog as the primary species, with comparisons to other groups including feline, equine, ruminant, porcine, and avian. Dr. Singh is a well-known faculty member at the University of Saskatchewan, lecturing in veterinary anatomy.
Features: This book provides an excellent series of annotated illustrations of major veterinary anatomical concepts. It does not replace a standard anatomy textbook, nor does it claim to, but it provides supplemental information in a manner designed to stimulate student interest and curiosity. All major organ systems and species are included. The dog is used as the primary species, as is traditional in teaching veterinary anatomy, but key illustrations describe anatomical variations between species. In general, the organization is clear and builds upon a student's previous knowledge. In some instances, material seems to appear out of standard sequence, such as the inclusion of the puppy skull much later than other skull bone illustrations, and there is some duplication of information. Another shortcoming is the lack of an index. Although there is a table of contents and a list of illustrations, they are quite wordy and are of limited value when searching for a specific topic.
Assessment: This is a great study guide for veterinary anatomy students. Although several other books in the field address a specific species, this book provides information on the dog, with illustrations of important differences among comparative species. It does not replace a standard anatomy book, but it may be quite useful as a dissection aid or study tool, as well as a long-term reference.
