This “2010” edition (revised printing in 2011) is the third publication of “A Guided Tour of Veterinary Anatomy.” The first edition was published by W. B. Saunders Company in 1992. The second (“Y2K”) edition was published by the author in 1999.

So what’s new in this edition? The “short answer” is many more illustrations and color. There are also new sections on “Bone Development from a Gross Anatomist’s Perspective”, and “Comparative Anatomy: How the domestic species we study relate to one another and fit into the larger scheme of mammals on the planet”. More emphasis has been placed on the horse. Of the 360 figures in this edition, 159 are new, and many of the remaining 201 have been improved and/or colorized.

A bright-red spiral binding and a colorful cover are omens of what is to follow. The twenty-ten edition of A Guided Tour of Veterinary Anatomy is a dissection manual of domestic hoofed mammals (horses, oxen, goats, sheep, and pigs). It is a well-written and abundantly illustrated guided tour that should readily achieve one of its stated purposes: “to motivate students to enjoy the wonderful and exciting world of anatomy.” The twenty-ten edition is substantially improved over the Y2K edition, and it includes a more balanced coverage of horses (head and limbs in particular) and incorporation of many new, improved, or color images. Veterinary students will appreciate that points of major importance (ie, application of anatomy to veterinary medicine, such as physiology, pathology, radiology, medicine, or surgery) are emphasized throughout the topographical tour. Selected differences among the aforementioned 5 species and dogs are mentioned, although camelids and deer are absent; pertinent literature is footnoted on selected pages. An early chapter on principles of radiography sets the scene for interpretation of normal skeletal anatomy in subsequent radiographs. Dissectors will enjoy reading the instructions because they are laced with friendly tongue-in-check humorous comments and insightful anecdotes, which should brighten the day in the laboratory and assist retention of particularly fascinating facts (eg, the anatomy of a slab of pork belly bacon). Furthermore, this guide is aided by many clinical correlations sprinkled along the way. Overall, instructors and veterinary students will be amply rewarded by studying these attractive pages, which are sequenced as a readily accessible dissection manual that is colorful in tone and illustration.
