5.0 out of 5 stars I don't know how anyone can say this book is confusing., 30 Mar 2008
This review is from: Textbook of Veterinary Physiology, 4e (Hardcover)
I currently own 2 different editions of Cunninghams because I find it so useful. If you are on a veterinary course or a course in which you need to be slightly clever then this book will not confuse you. If it does then theres something wrong, the book lays out everything you need to know in system format about the different physiological systems of the animal body. This new fourth edition is a very nice improvement on the old one. With a totally new coloured format, tonnes of new diagrams (and when you see the little Cunningham word in your lecture beneath a picture as I have done so many times in mine, it means its been taken from this book). Many of my lecturers reference the diagrams specifically because they explain certain concepts so well. Depending on which vet uni you are at it will be useful at different times though the course but wherever you have Systems Physiology (for RVC students that would be late3rd year early 4th year) the book is invaluable. This latest edition also comes with free online content in the form of practice questions, so its explanatory what you do, read the chapter and then go online and do the questions. The clinical correlations sections at the end of each chapter show you why the information you've just read over is of clinical relevance, and this is something which can easily be forgotten in the first few years of the course when seeing a live animal is a novelty. Check this book out in your library, and if like me and the majority of people I know you find it useful, go and buy it, and use it until it starts to fall apart.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd choose this over Eckert any day!, 12 Dec 2011
This review is from: Textbook of Veterinary Physiology, 4e (Hardcover)
As a vet student, the Eckert Animal Physiology book was recommended for us to use and buy. I had initially used that book as a Systems Physiology book in undergrad and found it useful since my teacher liked using marine animals as examples, most of which Eckert draws its examples from. However, as a vet student studying domestic species, echinoderms and sperm whales were unnecessary for me to know. That's why I would recommend the Cunningham. It is written strictly for veterinary students and has great diagrams and pictures to demonstrate what it is trying to say. It's not too verbose like the Dyce anatomy book, but has some great pictures in it too.
