9780683072402: Physiology of Domestic Animals (National Veterinary Medical Series)

This book is an excellent introductory course in physiology for the student in agricultural science, veterinary technology, and pre-veterinary medicine. It provides in-depth coverage of eight species, including horse, dog, cat, cow, sheep, goat, pig, and chicken. The latest edition is extensively revised, and features 133 newly created original drawings that capture the essence of physiologic concepts, and allow the reader to compare. Each chapter is followed by self-assessment and review questions, and at the back of the book readers will find answers to these questions as well as expanded explanations, providing a handy reference and study guide. The second edition provides augmented coverage of avian physiology, and a new chapter on bone has been added, with comprehensive presentation of the skeleton for each of the species.

From the Back Cover:

This new third edition provides the reader with a greater understanding of the purpose of animal systems and their functions, resulting in a valuable introductory text for pre-veterinary or veterinary tech students, and for students in animal science-related curricula.

Anatomical structure-both gross and microscopic-is also explored to help the reader build the basic foundation needed for future study and clinical practice.

Features and highlights include:


  • New introductory chapter on Basics of Structure and Function, with explanations of anatomical terms and orientation.

  • Logical organization of content according to body systems, with coverage of eight traditional domestic species: horse, dog, cat, cow, sheep, goat, pig and chicken.

  • Greater coverage of avian-specific physiology to reflect the role of poultry in agriculture and growing public interest in birds as pets.

  • Expanded range of anatomy-oriented illustrations to convey key concepts effectively-a real benefit for beginning students.

  • Study aids and self-evaluation sections to help readers prepare for course work and exams.
