If you are looking for a book that presents a unique photographic record of dissections showing the topographical anatomy of the dog and cat: this is the atlas for you! Part of a comprehensive 3-volume set that also covers Ruminants (Volume 1) and The Horse (Volume 2), the Color Atlas of the Dog and Cat takes a complete look at virtually every aspect of veterinary anatomy. With this book you will be able to see the position and relationships of bones, muscles, nerves, blood vessels and viscera that go to make up each region of the body and each organ system. Rich with full-color photographs and drawings of dissections prepared specifically for these texts, each book in the series illustrates regional surface features photographed before dissection, then gives high-quality complementary photographs of articulated skeletons.
Accessibly and systematically structured with each chapter is devoted to a specific body region
Important features of regional and topographical anatomy presented in full color photos of detailed dissections
Detailed color line drawings clarify the relationships of relevant structures
Website offers drag and drop quizzes and the chance to test yourself with mcqs
Informative captions give additional information necessary for proper interpretation of the images
Presents anatomy in a clinical context
"This second edition has expanded considerably its predecessor and the main differences are the frequent use of radiographs, CT and MRI scans, brief clinical notes to highlight the more significant areas and also access to an on-line resource and self-assessment tests. At over 500 pages the book is extremely comprehensive and the authors are to be applauded for their meticulous attention to detail. (...) I would foresee that this book will be an essential purchase of all veterinary pre-clinical students and should also find its way onto the shelves of most practice libraries." - Tim Hutchinson, BVSc CertSAS MRCVS; European Journal of Companion Animal Practice, October 2009
"This atlas is a valuable teaching tool for canine anatomy in conjunction with other sources. With its reasonable price, there is little doubt it will gain many friends among veterinary students." Vet Record, May 2010
''The atlas offers regional and topographical anatomy in full colour images with the support of beautiful drawings labelled in full detailswith a nomenclature based on Nomina Anatomica Veterinaria. Dissections of the cadavers are viewed from the surface inward. The use of embalmed cadavers lacks realism, but it is helpful to study the topographical relationship between different anatomical structures.'' Simona T. Radaelli
