Functional Anatomy and Physiology of Domestic Animals, Fourth Edition, provides a thorough grounding in the structure and function of animal body systems. Taking an integrated approach to the basics of anatomy both gross and microscopic and physiology, the book helps readers understand their interconnection in the most common domestic species. With chapters logically arranged by system, Functional Anatomy and Physiology of Domestic Animals offers students in pre-veterinary or veterinary technology programs an excellent introduction to body systems for future study and practice and acts as a quick review of the basics for more advanced courses in physiology or in a clinical setting. The fourth edition maintains its expanded coverage of avian topics, including additional information on the kidney, respiration, digestion, and male and female reproduction systems, and a greater depth of information on body water and electrolytes, to facilitate comprehension of capillary dynamics, renal dynamics, and fluid replacement therapy. More than 350 illustrations, including many new and revised to this edition, reinforce the concepts covered in the text. To aid in student learning, the book incorporates many tools such as chapter outlines, study aid questions, self-evaluation exercises, clinical correlates, bolded key terms, and suggested reading, with two-color text for improved ease of use.
