Vetinary Record, August 2012 "Every aspect of canine anatomy and development is discussed in detail throughout the 21 chapters. The detailed table of contents and index allows for accurate and rapid searching for required content...A great addtion to this book is the initial two chapters on 'The dog and its relatives' and 'Prenatal development'..."Miller's Anatomy of the Dog" would serve as a fantastic reference book for clinicians, veterinary students, anatomists, technicians, nurses and would be a valuable addition to any veterinary clinic library."
