Review quote

"My first impressions were that this text brings the discipline of anatomy alive... Many of these illustrations are in colour, and all are very clear. I feel that both experience practitioners and veterinary nurses will benefit greatly as this book will remind them of so much they might once have understood as well as illuminate the procedures they may use routinely ... I have to recommend it highly."
--Kumar Sivan in Veterinary Practice

"This great book offers a slightly different approach which I find makes the tedious process of studying anatomy much more bearable. Nice illustrations, photos, anatomical cuts, X-rays and even CT scans help grasping an integrative approach of this difficult but obligatory part of your training. Very useful!"
--Tomorrow's Vets
