Our study in Veterinary Science starts with the book titled “The Body of Domestic Animals – Structure and Function”, and is focused on the description of the structure and function of the animals’ body. This subject is analysed comparatively for all domestic animals and humans, with reference to the interaction between Physiology and disease pathogenesis, and with many explanations and information about the meaning and the origin of the anatomical terms.
The book “Comparative Functional Anatomy and Physiology of Domestic Animals” was written with the ambition to become the first of a series titled “Veterinary Medicine for All” that will cover all aspects of Veterinary Medicine. In line with the university syllabus of most schools of Veterinary Medicine, following Anatomy and Physiology of Animals, the education in Veterinary Science continues with Veterinary Microbiology, Infectious Diseases of Animals, and Veterinary Pathology, which clearly paves the way for the books you can expect in the future from DrHippocrates.com!
See below for an animated presentation of the book titled “The Body of Domestic Animals – Structure and Function”
The Structure and Function of the Body of Domestic Animals: in science this is called Anatomy and Physiology and constitutes the basis of the study of veterinary medicine!
Part 1 analyses the structure and functions of the skeletal and muscular systems, nervous system, sensory organs, and cardiovascular system. It contains many references to everyday issues of animal health and behaviour and provides details on the meaning and origin of the relevant anatomical terms. Our guide to this knowledge journey is the veterinarian and professor of veterinary medicine, Dr Hippocrates, who explains to us what tendonitis is and what its relationship is with the hero of ancient Greek mythology, Achilles, tells us why cows may faint at the end of their pregnancy or why horses do not enjoy much jumping over obstacles, shows us the frightening parasites that infect the hearts of animals, and remembers how he felt when he first diagnosed a dog with the certain disease!
