Table of Contents
  • This atlas features more than 200 high-quality photographs and full-color illustrations.
  • Orientation diagrams help identify the region of the body in which the photograph was taken.
  • Colored text throughout the book highlights dissection instructions. A second color draws comparisons between cat and human anatomy.
  • The muscular system section uses a systematic, regional treatment of muscle groups with a brief description of the muscle and a detailed description of the origin, insertion, and action of each.
  • The skeletal system section is highly detailed, with careful descriptions of the individual bones and their relationships to each other and to the entire system. The illustrations in this section are superb, representing actual bones with natural surface texture, features, and foramina.
  • Coverage of other systems consists of a detailed account of the anatomy and an instructional guide to exposing that anatomy.
