Textbook Of Veterinary Physiology

By Pradip Kumar Das, Veerasamy Sejian, Joydip Mukherjee and Dipak Banerjee

Textbook of Veterinary Physiology explores the fundamental qualitative and quantitative aspects of veterinary physiology. It presents the morphological description of the organs, tissues, and cells involved in the physiological system with species variation. The book provide the most up-to-date information and in depth knowledge in animal physiology. The book addresses a broad range of topics, including the physiology of digestion in, monogastric animals, ruminants, and birds, and cardio vascular and respiratory system in different animals. The chapters contain a wealth of information on the areas related to the endocrine system, excretory system, body fluid homeostasis, hematology, male and female reproductive systems, coordination of body functions, and regulation of brain functions and sense organs. Further, this book acquaints students with advanced topics like immune system, assisted reproductive technology, ovarian dynamics, environmental physiology and thermoregulation, and behavioral physiology. This textbook contains clear illustrations including graphical abstracts and study questions for each chaptermaking this book a valuable learning resource for veterinary sciences and veterinary medicine students.Further to attract students and create interest in them, interesting facts related to animal physiology have also been highlighted in form of “Know more widges”.

  • Gives detailed physiology of avian, domestic, and wildlife animals
  • Focuses on ovarian dynamics, environmental physiology, and thermoregulation
  • Discusses physiology principles and concepts to the diagnosis and treatment of animal diseases
