Mammalian Anatomy The Cat, 2nd Edition

This full-color dissection guide is intended for students taking Mammalian Anatomy, Comparative Anatomy, General Biology, or Anatomy & Physiology courses and contains 175 photographs plus many full-color illustrations. The combination of a good anatomy text, clear discussions of dissection techniques, and well-executed photographs and illustrations makes this a definitive book in biology curricula. 3-hole drilled.

I ordered this book as a supplement to my required books for my anatomy class in a veterinary technology program. It was extremely helpful, and I would definitely order this again! The detailed pictures and descriptions help to lay things out so they make sense, and it helped a lot both in lab and with studying. Definitely recommend this for any animal science students!

The pictures are very detailed. The one thing I did not like is that it relates or calls certain muscles by human medical terms. i am a vet tech student (soon to be vet student) and I wish it had just focused on the terms I would use versus a student going into the nursing/human medical route.

This guide came in very handy as our cat in Anatomy & Physiology was not prepped very well, making identification of crucial arteries and veins very difficult. For the cost, I recommend, simply to assist in the identification process, should you run into the same situation which I did.

This book comes in separate sheets (three hole punch), so be prepared with a notebook binder or to take the item to a store and have it professionally spiral bound (cheap cost). Great cat anatomy book with detailed photos.

This may sound petty but my biggest complaint is that the loose-leaf pages are not 8 1/2 x 11; they’re about 9 x 11. Apparently it didn’t occur to the publisher that the book would be used as a guide during dissection and the owner might want to put the pages into sheet protectors.
