A revised third edition of this bestselling textbook. It contains a unique blend of text, colour photographs, imaging and diagrams describing the gross systematic and topographical anatomy of domestic mammals. Throughout the book the authors focus on anatomical relationships to clinical conditions and where appropriate, to microscopic anatomy, histology, embryology and physiology. Greatest emphasis is given to dog and cat and horse, with relevant information on ox/cow, pig, sheep, goat and rabbit. The book combines meticulous science and superb illustrations, and will be a life-long source of reference for veterinary students, practitioners, educators and researchers.
