Clinical Dissection Guide for Large Animals, Second Edition, provides a self-directed and detailed guide for the dissection of the horse and large ruminants. Organized into two parts, one for each of the animal groups included, the material is presented as a progressive series of anatomical illustrations accompanied by key descriptive text. This guide also provides regional and topographical dissection techniques starting with surface features and progressing to deeper structures, stopping along the way for appropriate comments on principal anatomical entities for each region.
The second edition introduces all the bones and joints and the most important clinical correlations with the anatomical structures exposed during the dissection. With more than 650 illustrations on more than 320 plates, the Clinical Dissection Guide for Large Animals, Second Edition, belongs on the shelf of every student and veterinarian who works with horses or large ruminants.
Each part includes coverage of:
* Thorax and Thoracic Viscera
* Abdomen and Abdominal Viscera
* Pelvis, Pelvic Viscera, Tail, and External Genitalia
* Pelvic Limb
* Thoracic Limb
Although the guide is dedicated primarily to the veterinary student in the anatomy laboratory, it also provides relevant anatomical information for students and veterinarians in meat inspection and necropsy services, for students in equine clinical rotations, and for the equine and food animal veterinarians. Likewise, undergraduate-school and graduate-school educators in veterinary science, biomedical science, and animal science can gain extensive familiarity with the anatomy of large domestic animals through this guide. Finally, the professional equine breeder and cattle breeder will discover new and useful information about the anatomy of large animals.
