This is the third edition of the bestseller “Dissection protocols”. In addition to a clear and practical exposition of the different body anatomical regions and how to access them, this book includes a new chapter on osteology. Thus, the information about the anatomy of the dog is more complete and comprehensive, and turns this book into a reference for veterinary students and professionals. Furthermore, this work includes an online self-assessment system so that vets and future vets can evaluate their progress. In words of the authors: “This book is an interactive tool to optimise effort and personal work”.
