Need to brush up on your equine and large animal anatomy? Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine has got you covered! Their faculty members of the university recently published two guides, called “Equine Anatomy Guide: The Head and Neck, an Illustrated Guide” and “Guide to Ruminant Anatomy: Dissection and Clinical Aspects.”
While the books are primarily for veterinary students, equine and large animal veterinarians will find the full-color illustrated dissection teaching guides useful in their practices.
According to the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine website:
“‘Equine Anatomy Guide: The Head and Neck, an Illustrated Guide’ is authored by Dr. Mahmoud Mansour, professor in the department of anatomy, physiology and pharmacology, who is also coordinator of the large animal gross anatomy section. Dr. Janet Steiss, professor emerita, edited the book and compiled it online for private publication. Dr. Paul Rumph, professor emerita, authored the chapter covering the teeth, blood vessels and nerves. Dr. Dewey ‘Ray’ Wilhite, coordinator for the gross anatomy laboratory, contributed to the dissections and images throughout the book. ‘Guide to Ruminant Anatomy: Dissection and Clinical Aspects’ is authored by Dr. Mansour, Dr. Wilhite and anatomy instructor Dr. Joe Rowe.”
The equine guide is the third book, out of four, planned on equine anatomy. It’s also in full-color, which can help first-year veterinary students better understand the anatomy of horses, according to the university. The fourth book, “Equine Anatomy Guide: Body Cavities,” will be published in September.
The books are available through John Wiley & Sons Inc.
