Color Atlas of Small Animal Anatomy: The Essentials / Edition 1

This new resource provides a basic foundation in small animalanatomy for students of veterinary medicine, animal science, andveterinary technology.  Extraordinary accuracy and beautifuloriginal artwork make this a truly unique learning tool thatincludes the anatomy of all organ systems in the dog, cat, rabbit,rat, and guinea pig - all described in a consistent manner. 

Learning features include: carefully selected labeling helpsstudents learn and remember structures and relationships; male andfemale of species are depicted on facing pages so topographicanatomy can be compared; structures common to various animals arelabeled several times, whereas unique structures are labeled on oneor two species so students can make rapid distinctions of thestructures peculiar to certain animals; and an introduction thatprovides readers with a background in nomenclature and anatomicorientation so they can benefit from the atlas even if they lacktraining in anatomy. 

The Atlas depicts topographic relationships of major organs in asimple, yet technically accurate presentation that's free fromextraneous material so that those using the atlas can concentrateon the essential aspects of anatomy. It will be an invaluableresource for veterinary students, teachers and practitionersalike.
