This book is no longer available in the VIN store.

  Twenty-five contributors combine to update this edition. Although anatomy probably doesn’t undergo changes, what does change is how we address the various problems associated with anatomy, and the improved methods of diagnoses, investigation, and imaging. This edition presents a new chapter on topographical-clinical anatomy augmented with a section on the rectal examination (Ch.19) and an additional chapter on sectional anatomy and imaging (Ch 20).

Beginning with a brief history of veterinary anatomy, including early drawings of animal anatomy, the text follows with some of the basic features of various anatomical systems. Numerous drawings and photo illustrations are included. Color drawings separate various skeletal features and comparisons with photos of skeletal models for orientation. Each feature is numbered for ease of comparison. The musculature is examined in a similar fashion, with drawings and photos to enable comparisons between species (dog, horse).

Chapter 19, as promised, illustrates the various aspects of the animal body and the connections between the skeletal parts, musculature, and organs. Represented are the dog, horse, cow, sheep, and goat. The drawings are detailed and enhanced with color to give emphasis to each part.

Chapter 20 contains numerous sections of imaging films to further illustrate the appearance in vivo. The process of plastination is discussed. The chapter shows random shots of various body parts to illustrate how imaging might appear compared with a particular part.

All in all, the book is a wonderfully detailed reference for anatomy, essentially meant for students, it would be very useful in any clinic setting for technician reference or to illustrate a point to a client.

The book is an excellent reference for anatomy, well illustrated and with detailed drawings. One problem, which may be only an editing preference, is the numerous “orphans” left when words were badly split and carried to the next line. The problem may also be accredited to language translation, but some clean-up editing might have been in order. Not a huge problem, but one that causes the reader to pause when reading and be distracted from the text.
