Illustrated Guide to Veterinary Medical Terminology, second edition will help students learn medical terms and understand the basics of veterinary medicine. This easy-to-use text offers a systematic approach to learning the parts of medical terms, thereby allowing students to understand basic medical concepts and apply critical thinking skills in determining the meaning of new medical terms. This unique text focuses on how medical terms are formed, analyzed, and defined; discusses anatomical landmarks, the positioning of animals and the relationships between body parts; and introduces terms used in the animal industry. Organized by terms used in each of the body systems, specific chapters on lab tests, procedures, and treatments follow the sections on body systems. Several species-specific chapters are also included. This new edition offers greatly expanded art work. The additional images offer greater clarity for students and serve as review illustrations for other courses and in professional practice. The audio portion of the CD-ROM offers students the opportunity to both hear and see the terms they're learning. The addition of online material to accompany the text offers instructors teaching tips, additional activities, PowerPoint presentations, review exams, and other resources for greater flexibility in the classroom.
