Anatomy And Physiology For Veterinary Technicians And Nurses: A Clinical Approach By Robin Sturtz And Lori Asprea

By Robin Sturtz and Lori Asprea

Anatomy and Physiology for Veterinary Technicians and Nurses A Clinical Approach PDF is a comprehensive resource on the anatomy and physiology of dogs and cats, with comparisons to horses, birds, and ruminants. Organized by body system with a comparative approach, the book follows a unique format by addressing anatomy separately from physiology for clarity and improved comprehension. Each anatomy chapter has a corresponding physiology chapter, complete with illustrations, charts, and boxes to promote understanding.

Written specifically for veterinary technicians and nurses, the book applies anatomy and physiology to clinical practice, with case examples demonstrating clinical relevance.  This introduction to body system analysis of normal structure and function is a must-have resource for students of veterinary technology and nursing, as well as a useful quick review for the busy professional.
