Miller's Anatomy of the Dog Hardcover – October, 1979

Most of the pictures are hand drawn in black & white (sometimes with red arteries, blue veins, and yellow nerves). They are some of the best anatomy drawings I have seen and are not too difficult for me to visualize three-dimensionally. There is also a section on bones and the skull in the beginning of the book that includes radiographs.
I think the reason some people use this book only as a doorstop is because the text can be overwhelmingly detailed. Additionally, its large size (1113 pages) makes it very heavy to carry around. There is a much smaller book with pictures out of Miller's, the Guide to the Dissection of the Dog, which has many fewer pictures and was therefore not my book of choice.
I would highly recommend Miller's Anatomy of the Dog to every beginning veterinary student, unless you are pretty sure you don't want to carry around such a heavy book. Use it for the pictures rather than the text and you won't be disappointed.
If you are looking for an easy guide this book is not for you.
However if you want a professional quality medical guide on anatomy buy this book, you will not regret it.

He has said in great detail what you need to know about this book and I concur with his descriptions of the textbook.
