Description

This new resource provides a basic foundation in small animal anatomy for students of veterinary medicine, animal science, and veterinary technology.  Extraordinary accuracy and beautiful original artwork make this a truly unique learning tool that includes 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 helps students learn and remember structures and relationships; male and female of 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; and an introduction that provides readers with a background in nomenclature and anatomic orientation so they can benefit from the atlas even if they lack training in anatomy. 

The Atlas depicts topographic relationships of major organs in a simple, yet technically accurate presentation that's 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.

""This book will be an invaluable resource for veterinary students, teachers, and practitioners alike as it manages to present information in a manner that is easy to understand by almost any reader"". (Mammalia, 2010)

""This atlas fills the gap between... highly detailed references and oversimplified anatomic descriptions.  The authors have achieved their objectives by providing accurate descriptions of the most pertinent anatomy while avoiding excessive detail... it manages to present information in a fashion that is easy to understand by almost any reader. Veterinary students will appreciate the comparative nature of the book, with the range of species presented. Professionals with more advanced knowledge will find the atlas useful in explaining anatomy to laypersons, clients, and students."" - Doody's Reviews, June 2009

“The Color Atlas of Small Animal Anatomy: The Essentials beautifully depicts the topographic anatomy of organ systems in dogs, cats, rabbits, rats, and guinea pigs.... The atlas is an invaluable source of accurate basic anatomic illustrations for veterinary medical students, practitioners, and educators and contains reasonable details to be of use for laboratory animal researchers.” - Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association

""I would recommend this book for any clinic or hospital and suggest that your technicians and staff will use it often."" - Veterinary Information Network
