Dog Anatomy: A Coloring Atlas [Book]
Title: Dog Anatomy: A Coloring Atlas
Author: Robert A. Kainer, DVM, MS & Thomas O. McCracken, MS
Detailed descriptions of body, directional terms and body planes, anatomy diagrams. This simple, easy-to-use presentation of a do-it-yourself format maximizes comprehension and retention. This is similar to the book that I used to pass the Licensing exam for Massage Therapist for the State of Ohio Medical Board. It’s 2-dimentional format is easy to understand and easy to memorize. Besides the anatomical descriptions, it includes kinesiology, detailing the primary movements and functions of muscles, joints (articulations), et al. It also has delightful factoids such as the lyssa (a fusiform structure in the tip of the dog’s tongue, made of connective, muscular and fatty tissue) from rabid dogs, back in ancient Roman times, used to be ground up and used as an antidote for rabies. Until recently, lyssa meant rabies.
195 black and white line drawings, detailed index. This is the textbook for the Anatomy Module for the Foundation Level Program and the Basic Anatomy of the Dog PetMassage™ Home Study Course.
