Veterinary & Animal Health

This unique atlas on Bovine Anatomy combines the advantages of both topographical and systems based methods of anatomy. Each page of text faces a full page of realistic illustrations in colour. The topographical treatment of parts of the body is accompanied by illustrations of the bones, joints, muscles, organs, blood vessels, nerves, and lymph nodes of each part. Information tables on the muscles, lymph nodes, and peripheral nerves provide brief data referenced to the text. The illustrations were drawn from dissections especially prepared for that purpose, and instructions are given for the dissections. Particular attention is paid to the histology, growth, and function of the bovine hoof, based on extensive research. In addition to the gross anatomy of the udder, its development, histology, and function are described and illustrated. One chapter is devoted to the pathology, pathogenesis, and molecular biology of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, scrapie of sheep and goats, and chronic wasting disease of American deer and elk.
