Description

This well-illustrated atlas provides detailed coverage of the surgical anatomy of the skeletal system of dogs and cats. It's a great learning and teaching tool for small animal surgery that contains highly detailed and clearly labeled drawings of bones and joints. The comprehensive coverage and vivid detail allow surgeons to explore a variety of approaches to fit each unique clinical situation.

Key Features

  • A consistent presentation, with text on left side of the page and illustration plates on right, provides easy access to key material
  • Full pages are dedicated to each plate with descriptive titles and detailed labeling
  • Cross references allow for easy comparison of approaches to the same area or the combination of approaches to treat multiple injuries
  • Each approach has one plate number, no matter how many parts, and thus can be referenced by the plate number rather than by the page number
