Comparative Veterinary Anatomy: A Clinical Approach describes the comprehensive, clinical application of anatomy for veterinarians, veterinary students, allied health professionals and undergraduate students majoring in biology and zoology. The book covers the applied anatomy of dogs, cats, horses, cows and other farm animals, with a short section on avian/exotics, and with specific clinical anatomical topics. The work improves the understanding of basic veterinary anatomy by making it relevant in the context of common clinical problems. This book will serve as a single-source reference on the application of important anatomical structures in a clinical setting.
Students, practitioners and specialists will find this information easy-to-use and well-illustrated, thus presenting an accurate representation of essential anatomical structures that relates to real-life clinical situations in veterinary medicine.

Alexander De Lahunta Department of Biomedical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA.
Alexander de Lahunta graduated from Phillips Academy Andover in 1951 and the New York State College of Veterinary Medicine in 1958. From 1958-1960 he joined the mixed animal practice of Drs. Carol and George Cilley in Concord, NH. He returned to the Department of Anatomy, College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University in 1960 for graduate study, where he was awarded a PhD in 1963 and appointed assistant professor at that time. Dr. de Lahunta spent 42 years on that faculty and retired in 2005. In the mid-1960s he organized and personally ran a consulting service for clinical neurology in the Teaching Hospital, as well as organized and taught a vertically oriented course in veterinary neuroanatomy and clinical neurology to first year students. For varying periods he has taught gross anatomy, embryology, applied anatomy and neuropathology. Dr. de Lahunta also received the ACVIM Robert Kirk Award. Dr. Kirk was his teacher as a student and mentor as a faculty member.
