Overview

Offering comprehensive coverage of core anatomic concepts, this respected, clinically oriented text is the definitive source for a complete understanding of veterinary anatomy. Gain the working anatomic knowledge that is crucial to your understanding of the veterinary basic sciences, as well as detailed information directly applicable to the care of specific animal species, including dogs, cats, horses, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, and birds. Each chapter includes a conceptual overview that describes the structure and function of an anatomic region, accompanied by new full-color dissection photographs that illustrate the relevance of anatomy to successful veterinary practice.

  • Content is logically organized into two main sections – a general introduction to mammalian anatomy and a region-specific breakdown – to make studying more efficient and ensure greater understanding.
  • Comprehensive, all-in-one coverage of all major species presents everything you need to master anatomic concepts in one text.
  • Focus on essential anatomy of each species delivers just the right level of detail to help you establish a solid foundation for success.
  • For the first time all images in the text appear in full color! This lifelike presentation clarifies anatomic concepts and structures in vibrant detail.
  • Vivid full-color dissection photographs help you translate anatomic knowledge to clinical practice and confidently perform dissection procedures.
  • A companion Evolve Resources website reinforces your understanding and helps you prepare for the NAVLEÒ board exam with 300 exam-style practice questions, a full-color electronic image collection, and more.

The first edition of this textbook was published in 1987. The layout of the second edition is not significantly different from the first edition. This is an 850-page book is divided into two parts. The first part deals with various body systems using the dog as a model, although extensive coverage of the cat is included. Salient differences also included in this section. The second part of the book deals with regional and clinical applications. The purpose of the book is to impart to the veterinary student general knowledge of mammalian structure and detailed information that is clinically applicable. Although written for the veterinary student, many practitioners would benefit from a review of this material. In the second part of the book, the chapters can be read in any order because they are not dependent on one another (although they are dependent on a basic knowledge of the first section of the book). This feature allows easy access to a particular area of interest. New material has been added with new references. Color photographs give exceptional detail for the text, as do the additional illustrations. This book is extremely useful in the education of the veterinary student. The quality is superb and the book does an exceptional job of covering the important anatomical aspects of the domesticated species, including an extensive chapter on avian anatomy. The new edition is filled with information not included in the first, and this second edition is one that would be valuable in a veterinarian's personal library.
