Dukes Physiology of Domestic Animals, Thirteenth Edition offers a thorough update to the classic comprehensive text on domestic animal physiology. Now in full color throughout, the book has been fully revised to provide an increased clinical focus, more pedagogical features, and online supplements to promote learning and increase the book s usefulness in the classroom and in the clinic. Each chapter includes outlines, introductions, key terms, more images, questions addressing important information, and self–evaluation exercises.

Throughout the book, domestic animal structure and dysfunction is applied to the practice setting, with clinical correlations, notes of relevance, and exercises featuring clinical situations to demonstrate the practical relevance. Presenting detailed, complete descriptions of mammalian and avian function, Dukes Physiology of Domestic Animals is equally useful as a primary text for veterinary students, as a practice reference for clinicians, and as a basic resource for researchers.

Key Features

  • Presents in–depth, comprehensive descriptions of domestic animal function and dysfunction
  • Emphasizes clinical relevance, with clinical correlations, notes of relevance, and self–assessment questions featuring situations likely to be faced in practice
  • Offers pedagogical features, including chapter outlines and introductions, key terms throughout the book, additional images, questions to enhance learning, and self–assessment exercises
  • Distills the most useful information for ease of use, with improved continuity and reduced repetition
  • Acts as a reference for students learning physiological concepts, practitioners applying physiology to the clinical setting, and researchers requiring a resource for mammalian and avian physiology
  • Includes a companion website offering review questions and answers and the figures from the book in PowerPoint at [external URL]

Overall, this book provides a fulfilling overview of the physiology knowledge required for veterinary students during their time at university and in their future career.  I like the fact that it is easy to use and feel that the self–evaluation sections will be particularly welcome for veterinary students.   (Veterinary Record, 1 December 2015)

It is certainly a textbook worth consideration for undergraduate or professional physiology courses and those interested in the comparative aspects of physiology.   (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 September 2015)
