Product Description


"The fourth edition of Functional Anatomy and Physiology of Domestic Animals is a marked improvement over previous editions.... the illustrations are wonderful... [and] allow readers to visualize the structure in a cohesive manner.... well written and inclusive of all relevant material for a basic anatomy course." – Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, September 2009

"This is a serious book for the veterinary student, a reference for the veterinarian or technician, and a good book to have in your library." – Veterinary Information Network

The fourth edition of Functional Anatomy and Physiology of Domestic Animals provides a thorough overview of the structure and function of animal body systems. – Veterinary Forum, May 2009

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

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.

Great Text! 21 Nov. 2000
By "slavine2" - Published on
Format: Paperback
This textbook covers the basics of physiology excellently. Thetext itself is informative yet concise, the descriptions given areclear and it is very comprehensible. Suitable for peclinical years asa primary textbook and also useful for those wanting a quick reminderof the basics, anyone with a general interest in the subject will alsofind the book genuinely interesting and informative. Theillustrations/diagrams are clear, plentiful and complement and clarifythe text appropriately.
The book is divided into 15 chapters, eachone dealing with a specific "body system". The study aidsand self evaluation sections (a series of questions and answers) atthe end of each chapter highlight the key facts and are invaluable asaids to studying the subject. For those who want to extend theirknowledge further a suggested reading list also at the end of thechapter will prove very useful. The physiology of all the mainspecies is covered in great detail, with attention to avianphysiology, which is a major benefit since many general physiologytextbooks tend to overlook this aspect. The basic anatomy of thespecies is also reviewed when necessary, which again aids in theunderstanding of the topic(s) being discussed.
The book presentsinformation in an interesting and inspiring manner and with it's easyto understand text and informative illustrations it really is a mustfor everyone who wishes to learn about animal physiology.

A top pick for any college-level library appealing to veterinary students 20 Aug. 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
The fourth updated edition of Functional Anatomy and Physiology of Domestic Animals integrates different approaches to domestic animal anatomy from the microscopic level upwards, considering connections between species, systems, and expanded coverage of avian topics. Over 350 illustrations - many new or revised for this edition - makes for a top pick for any college-level library appealing to veterinary students.

Good physiology fundamentals and detail 15 Sept. 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lots of figures. Easy to understand format that gives you what you need to know about physiology in the most concise format. Skips the extra stuff. Supplement with a good histology and anatomy book for vet school.

Well written text 12 Jun. 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I felt like this was a great undergrad level textbook for my Animal Anatomy/Physiology class. I plan on keeping it as a quick reference, though I'm sure I'll have to get a much denser book later in vet school.
Great book 22 Aug. 2013

I use it to submit an outline of what I believe to be necessary. It is rather superficial, but because it covers the subjects in such a large scope. I then use specialized materials to find out more about what I find relevant.
