Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Color Atlas of Veterinary Anatomy, Volume 3, The Dog and Cat, 2e (Paperback)
For a veterinary student or practising vet, this is a good anatomy resource. It consists mainly of dissection photos, drawings and some ancillary material, such as Xrays.
There is little text, which is probably a good thing as the book is let down by the quality of the text. It's almost as though someone suddenly realised that chapter introductions were needed and jotted down a few things they could remember about 'The Head', 'The Thorax' and so on. This is a pity because there is some information relevant to practice here but it's so poorly written and put together (and often so superficial as to be of little use) that it simply annoys rather than informs. Good editing and proofreading would have helped.
Many of the illustrations are very detailed but reproduced at such a small size that they become complicated to decipher - it might have been better to reduce the size of the dissection photos. It was also mildly disappointing to find that US spelling was used but that is a minor matter.
So, a useful book (and better in most respects than the text-heavy anatomy tomes of old) but could be better (and at this price, it should be!).
