Introduction to Veterinary Science, 3rd Edition
by James Lawhead, MeeCee Baker
Introduction to Veterinary Science, Third Edition, provides a solid foundation in this dynamic field for those studying animal and veterinary sciences or preparing for careers as veterinary assistants or technicians. The text begins with an overview of cellular and tissue physiology, followed by chapters dedicated to individual body systems to enable easy comprehension. The authors then investigate crucial topics such as nutrition, disease, surgeries, cost analysis of procedures, safety, and professionalism.
Throughout the text, real-life examples are integrated with chapter material to provide practical context, and both small and large animals are featured to expose students to the variety of cases they may encounter in the field. Each chapter opens with a “Day in the Life” preview that explores relevant applications of upcoming content, and chapters conclude with a description of clinical significance.
