Regional Ruminant Anatomy

This book is primarily a dissection guide for the goat, with references to the large ruminants and sheep. The major differences are mentioned and comments follow.

The book is organized into nine chapters based on the order of dissection: The Anatomical Regions of the Goat, The Skeleton, The Neck and Thoracic Inlet, The Thorax and Thoracic Viscera, The Abdomen and Abdominal Viscera, The Pelvis, Pelvic Viscera, and the External Genitalia, The Pelvic Limb, The Thoracic Limb, and The Head and Parotid Region.

Following each section is a Modlab with study guides to dissection and suggestions on study.

As the author is also a medical illustrator, the illustrations are excellent and numerous.

For students, this will be a valuable guide for increasing their familiarity with the small ruminant. For practicing veterinarians, this will be a tool for diagnosis and treatment of these animals. Goats seem to be much forgotten once veterinarians leave school, so those veterinarians who have good ruminant skills are at a premium in the US farming communities. Keep this book on your shelf.
