Format: Hardcover
Miller's Anatomy of the Dog (3rd Ed.) is the most comprehensive, best researched, most lavishly illustrated textbook on canine anatomy available. I teach veterinary anatomy at Colorado State University, and I advise my students that anyone planning to include dogs in their practice should own this text. Beyond the tremendous scope and excellent supportive illustrations, two things distinguish this book. One is Dr. Evans' meticulous adherence to anatomical nomenclature as dictated by the latest edition of the Nomina Anatomica Veterinaria (the international set of "rules" governing anatomical naming). Students can feel assured that the name given in the text (both in Latin and in English, in most cases) is the most correct for the structure. The second truly outstanding feature is the abundant footnoting, which is supported by an encyclopedic bibliography. Dr. Evans cites hundreds of original anatomical publications as he describes the common variations that have been described and presents relevant opinions about disputed functions or constructs. The bibliography is especially useful for anyone intending to use this book to aid their teaching or research. This book belongs on the shelf of all veterinarians and veterinary students with an interest in canine medicine and surgery.

By A Customer on July 9, 2002
Format: Hardcover
You will either love this book or hate it. I loved it mainly for the pictures, which it has a ton of. They are well labeled and there are usually several different views. I found them very, very helpful in identifying structures in anatomy lab. Our professor even required us to have at least one copy at every dissection table every day!
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.

I initially didn't like this book because I was intimidated by it. Quite frankly, it has A LOT of information. I was required to buy this book as a 1st year vet student taking anatomy and grew to really enjoy this book. I will say that is very tedious to read straight-through, but for reference, it is unbeatable. Every student and clinician should have a copy. The pictures are wonderful and the color-coding of the vessels and nerves make the structures very easy to visualize. Highly recommended.

I found Miller's guide to be very helpful. It provides thorough explanations of anatomical structures, as well as wonderful diagrams/drawings that serve as a helpful guide in dissection lab. I highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to fine tune their knowledge of dog anatomy.

The pictures are great, however they can lull you into a false sense of security come prac exams. Its incredibly wordy, and until you get used to this after a year or so of study it can be a bit overwhelming.

This book is a comprehensive guide to canine anatomy for the veterinary student. It contains excellent illustrations and written descriptions of the location and anatomical significance of the bones, muscles, nerves and vessels. Although very detailed, the layout is logical and easy to use, with a nice balance of illustrations, radiographs and written descriptions. It also describes the embryological derivation for different tissues and overall, perfectly complements anatomy lectures and practicals. It has been very helpful for the locomotor apparatus and cranial anatomy. The detail contained within this book make it ideal for any student planning a career in small animal practice.

I used this book as a first year veterinary student. I found the suggested text for my class (Dyce) to be useless. While it isn't logical to think you will sit down and read this book through at a thousand and some pages, it makes a great reference to read on a particular topic and fill in questions you have. I found it very helpful to clarify points my professor breezed over but would surely be on the test. Contains hundreds of detailed pictures and way more info than the dissection guide in a concise easy to read format. I look forward to always having this book as a reference to come back to.

This book is for anyone who understands medical terminology and wants to know in depth information on dogs.
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.
