For veterinary technicians and their professors, this book is a gift. It not only teaches the basics of anatomy and physiology but covers comparative domestic animal anatomy as well. No longer will the vet tech have to depend on human anatomy texts or buy expensive, huge volumes on each separate animal. The book is beautifully written and distills complex, large topics into simple manageable material. For veterinarians, the book is a great way to quickly review anatomy of all the species. For the nonprofessional reader, it would be a fascinating look at how animals are the same and yet different. The diagrams alone are worth the purchase.

Finally a clear, well written Anatomy & Physiology textbook for Vet Techs! No more interpolating from the human anatomy books. This book is well written, with clear and easily understood illustrations. It may become difficult to find this book "used" in the next few years; it is a book I will keep long after the course is over, to refer to in other classes. The sidebar on nutrition was especially helpful in another class this year.

I have always been impressed with th first edition of this text, and when I got the 2nd, I was pleased to see that they have managed to make it even better.

The information is presented in a clear format that makes the topics easy to understand. Explanations are not overly technical, but you still come away with a good understanding of the topic. There's lots of pictures and diagrams, as well as interesting information boxes, so it's not a dull, boring read. It helps you to understand the topic and if you want to move on to a more detailed text, it will give you a very solid base so you will be able to get into the more technical or involved aspects without being completely lost. I *highly* recommend this text for anyone who wants to learn animal A&P but is intimidated by more technical texts. By the time you get through this text you will be ready to tackle more detailed ones without any problem.

This textbook is pretty good information for those who are studying anatomy and physiology for the first time. However, it lacks the development of information at times for the functions I and descriptions of bones. Also, if you are a graphic learner, this book falls behind in terms of pictures. I found that I really needed to absorb what was observed in the lab to connect it with the information in this book.

Overall, it's a good start to learning the basics of anatomy and physiology.

This has been my best buy yet. For students studying veterinary/veterinary nursing this book is great. I would recommend it to anybody that is studying structure and fucntion. It is easy to understand and explains everything. You cannot go past this book if you are studying anatomy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

This has by far been my very favorite text in the veterinary field! I even purchased an additional copy for use in the veterinary hospital I work in - everyone, Veterinarians included, love it!

Interesting and explains things very easily.

The blue text/diagrams do get old, but I would rather have some color other than just black, which I personally find myself getting lost/daydreaming in with other texts!

It does lack real pictures, but I feel the diagrams do a wonderful job - what I did to get a real pic of structures in my head was to look at my own pets and name bones/muscles on them. I would also look at the pets, especially in surgery, at the vet hospital I work in and compare them to diagrams. In the vet tech program I took, we also had a supplement text, Color Atlas Of Veterinary Anatomy: Volume 3, The Dog And Cat (Color Atlas of Veterinary Anatomy), which did show actual pictures of a dissected dog and cat and I believe that also helped.

I was a student of one of the authors, Dr. Colville, at North Dakota State University and while I am not a big fan of the guy personally, he is a great author and I have to say, he and Joanna Bassert write a fabulous text! They really knew what they were doing and exceeded their goal with an interesting AND informative text!

I am preparing for my Veterinary Medical Technology Degree. I have many books on veterinary medicine and technology. I ordered Clinical Anatomy & Physiology for Veterinary Technicians because I wanted to better understand the animal body and its systems. This is a very good book for that. It is very easy to read and understand. There are many diagrams that are well layed out and are clear and concise. This is a great book if you are a student or if you just want to learn about the animal body and its many fascinating structures and systems.

I got this book for Vet A&P class, and I'm switching to a human anatomy book for next term. This book is printed in monochromatic blue, with lousy diagrams and scant information (24 pages dedicated to the skeletal system, and a whopping 14 for the muscular system!) In short, this is the most uninviting textbook I've ever opened, and it's been completely useless to me. A total waste of 50 bucks.
