Introduction to Veterinary Anatomy and Physiology 2nd Edition PDF Download
Although the anatomy and physiology syllabus for the veterinary nursing course has changed and has even been reduced in the past few years, it is still important to realize that when an animal is ill a basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology greatly facilitates the understanding of the dis-ease process and for this reason this textbook will continue to be essential reading for veterinary nurses.
Introduction to Veterinary Anatomy and Physiology is also used on many other animal science and animal care courses and in the 2nd edition we have widened its scope still further. Fundamental genetics has been added to the chapter on the reproductive system and there is now a chapter on equine anatomy included in Section 2.
This chapter is based on the fact that many of the anatomical systems of the horse are similar to those of the dog and cat but the locomotor and digestive systems are very different. The chapter describes these systems in detail and describes the key differences in the other systems.
Throughout this edition, in the boxed fragments, there is emphasis on clinical conditions related to the anatomy and physiology and these provide the reader with an insight into how the patient is affected and the rationale behind the treatment regime. The book now includes new illustrations, both transmission electron micrographs and light micrographs, and additional radiographs, all of which help the student’s understanding of the subject.
