About the book

Knowledge of veterinary anatomy and physiology is essential for veterinary students, professionals and researchers. In addition animal owners take an increasing interest in gaining greater levels of understanding. This book will reflect the diverse and dynamic research being undertaken in a variety of different species throughout the world. Whether the animals have roles in food security, agriculture, or as companion, wild, or working animals, the lessons we learn impact on many areas of the profession. From the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems through to pathology and infections and immunity, this books looks at laboratory research through to clinical trials and epidemiological data. From developmental stages and early life through to ageing, both healthy and pathological states, the importance of cellular mechanisms through to the entire animal are all explored. This is the second book in the series ‘Veterinary Anatomy and Physiology’.
