"This is a thorough and informative text that will be useful to veterinary and agricultural students, and as a reference resource to all others dealing with farm animals." (Clinical Nephrology, August 30, 2010)

"This is a thorough and informative text that will be useful to veterinary and agricultural students, and as a reference resource to all others dealing with farm animals. The chapters cover all aspects of anatomy and physiology in farm animals, with some excellent diagrams and tables. I would recommend the book to those who need information in this subject area, as well as those who require a good background text for their clinical work." (Veterinary Times, August 2010) 

"Useful clinical extracts are included, highlighted in blue, and there is a comprehensive glossary of commonly used abbreviations. (Veterinary Practice, November 2009)

"The new edition maintains the balance of depth and scope found in the six prior versions while also incorporating a number of revisions." (Book News, September 2009)

This book is a must for any horse owner. It is full of information written in laymans terms. Whether you are a veterinary student or just a new horse owner, you can literally see why your horse moves the way he does, why his body works the way that it does, and why he even behaves the way that he does. There is so much information about other farm animals also...dogs, goats, cows, deer, etc.
A great guide to understanding what your vet is talking about also.
This book will never be out dated!

Technical information that puts together the intricate parts of an animal and their functions. Packed with great information, but very technical. Someone without an animal science background may find it somewhat difficult to read.
