Textbook of Veterinary Anatomy

Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Offering comprehensive coverage of core anatomic concepts, this respected, clinically oriented text is the definitive source for a complete understanding of veterinary anatomy. Gain the working anatomic knowledge that is crucial to your understanding of the veterinary basic sciences, as well as detailed information directly applicable to the care of specific animal species, including dogs, cats, horses, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, and birds. Each chapter includes a conceptual overview that describes the structure and function of an anatomic region, accompanied by new full-color dissection photographs that illustrate the relevance of anatomy to successful veterinary practice.
Content is logically organized into two main sections - a general introduction to mammalian anatomy and a region-specific breakdown - to make studying more efficient and ensure greater understanding.
Comprehensive, all-in-one coverage of all major species presents everything you need to master anatomic concepts in one text.
Focus on essential anatomy of each species delivers just the right level of detail to help you establish a solid foundation for success.
For the first time all images in the text appear in full color! This lifelike presentation clarifies anatomic concepts and structures in vibrant detail.
Vivid full-color dissection photographs help you translate anatomic knowledge to clinical practice and confidently perform dissection procedures.
A companion Evolve Resources website reinforces your understanding and helps you prepare for the NAVLEÒ board exam with 300 exam-style practice questions, a full-color electronic image collection, and more.

with its own delicate covering, the endomysium. These connective tissue components merge at each end of the muscle “belly” and continue as the tendons by which the muscle makes its attachment. The amount and quality of the connective tissue partly explain variations in the appearance and in the cooking and table qualities of different “cuts” of meat (another important factor is the degree of shortening that is allowed by hanging during postmortem rigor). The consumer is willing to pay more for
anulus and nucleus is not always very clear, particularly in the larger species. Retention of the nucleus within the fibrous ring absorbs shock and spreads the compressive forces to which the column is subjected over a wider part of the vertebrae. Insidious changes involving both nucleus and anulus commence relatively early in life. Fragmentation of the ring may allow the nucleus to escape, usually in the direction of the vertebral canal, where, directly or indirectly, it may press on the cord.

compensate for the incongruence of the articular surfaces, are each semilunar in plan and wedge-shaped in section and have concave proximal and flattened distal surfaces. Each is secured by ligaments that extend between its cranial and caudal extremities and the central nonarticular area of the proximal extremity of the tibia; the lateral meniscus is also attached caudally to the intercondylar fossa of the femur. Four ligaments join the femur to the bones of the leg. A medial collateral ligament
