Summary

Summary

This text is intended to provide the reader with the essentials of dog anatomy and has been produced for people who enjoy dogs and wish to know a little more about their overall structure. Consequently dog owners, breeders, exhibitors, judges--anyone requiring information about the anatomy of the dog--should find the book useful. It should also be of interest to students beginning a course in veterinary anatomy. The emphasis throughout the book is placed on those points of anatomy that can be seen or felt from the surface through the skin. Surface views therefore form an important component of many of the drawings. A number of other drawings specifically relate internal anatomy to the surface of the body. Therefore the position and relationships of various internal components of the vascular, digestive, respiratory and urogenital systems are shown in surface projections.


Author Notes

For many years Dr. Peter Goody lectured in anatomy at The Royal Veterinary College in London and he is the author of Dog Anatomy: A Pictorial Approach to Canine Structure also published by J.A. Allen.
