Summary
Overview: Extraordinary accuracy and beautiful original artwork are just two features readers will find in this new resource, providing a basic foundation in small animal anatomy. Its unique organization includes the anatomy of all organ systems in the dog, cat, rabbit, rat and guinea pig. Learning features: carefully selected labeling helps students learn and remember structures and relationships; male and female of a given species are depicted on facing pages so topographic anatomy can be compared; structures common to various animals are labeled several times, whereas unique structures are labeled on one or two species so students can make rapid distinctions of the structures peculiar to certain animals. The Atlas depicts topographic relationships of major organs in a simple, yet technically accurate presentation that is free from extraneous material so that those using the atlas can concentrate on the essential aspects of anatomy. It will be an invaluable resource for veterinary students, teachers and practitioners alike.
