Dukes' Physiology of Domestic Animals, Thirteenth Edition offers a thorough update to the classic comprehensive text on domestic animal physiology. Now in full color throughout, the book has been fully revised to provide an increased clinical focus, more pedagogical features, and online supplements to promote learning and increase the book's usefulness in the classroom and in the clinic. Each chapter includes outlines, introductions, key terms, more images, questions addressing important information, and self-evaluation exercises. Throughout the book, domestic animal structure and dysfunction is applied to the practice setting, with clinical correlations, notes of relevance, and exercises featuring clinical situations to demonstrate the practical relevance.
