Summary

This practical guide facilitates a thorough dissection of the dog to learn basic mammalian structure and specific canine features. Emphasizing anatomical knowledge, each chapter presents self-contained guidance on the dissection of a specific body part, allowing the reader to perform these dissections in any sequence preferred. Descriptions are based on the dissection of embalmed, arterially injected adult dogs of mixed breeds, and the anatomical terms used in the book come from the Nomina Anatmica Veterinaria. Content is organized by specific body part to give readers the ability to work in any sequence. An introductory chapter explains commonly used terms in anatomy in great detail. It also discusses the moral implications of dissecting dogs for canine gross anatomy, as well as the procedures and guidelines used in dissection. A list of figures and tables with page numbers is included in the front of the book. A list of references is provided in the back of the book to provide opportunities for further study. New CAT scans are provided to show internal anatomical features that can only be seen by this method. More than 300 illustrations including new and updated drawings depict each dissection procedure, step-by-step. Updated content includes recommendations from individuals in the global veterinary community.
