The cat has been used as a subject for dissection in the study of mammalian anatomy for almost two centuries. The very popular Pictorial Anatomy of the Cat by Stephen G. Gilbert, originally published in 1967 and now in its 12th printing, has been used in countless laboratories as a guide to dissection and supplement to introductory textbooks. Outline of Cat Anatomy is an abridged version of the original guide, modified for practical use in one-semester courses. It employs anatomical terms used in human rather than veterinary anatomy and includes illustrations of human anatomy that may be compared with those of the cat, especially useful for the many students who do not have access to human dissections. Gilberts earlier Pictorial Anatomy of the Cat is "an excellent, well-illustrated dissection guide for use in courses in comparative anatomy. The text is informative and accurate, and instructions for dissection are clear and helpful.... Highly recommended." Choice

A good basic knowledge of radiological anatomy is essential for both the specialising and non-specialising veterinary audience. This comprehensive and general practice orientated reference book which provides detailed radiographic guidance on the normal clinical anatomy of the dog and cat. In addition to numerous projections of plain and contrast studies, this atlas includes detailed observations of the normal range of variations seen in the juvenile animal, differences between breeds and descriptions of the range of anatomical variations commonly encountered in veterinary practice. The clinical utility of the book has been greatly enhanced by the use of line drawings corresponding to the relevant radiographs and schematic drawings of those structures not normally visible in plain films. The authors, both with extensive teaching experience in postgraduate veterinary radiology, describe procedures and techniques routinely available in general veterinary practice. Monitored for anatomical accuracy throughout, this atlas provides a single volume reference for the general practitioner, undergraduate or postgraduate veterinary surgeon.
