Animal Biology and Care
by Sue E. Dallas. 
Paperback - 255 pages.

Designed to give veterinary nursing students training in the basics of animal biology, this book is also a helpful primer for all animal care-givers, from pet owners to professional trainers.

"The basic principles of nursing remain unchanged whether carried out at home or at a veterinary practice hospital," says veterinary nurse Sue Dallas. 

The first section of the text is devoted to the basics of animal biology, from cell and tissue structur to the fundamentals of genetics.

The second section focuses on animal health and husbandry -- how to recognize both good health and illness, and what actions to take to encourage good health and speed recovery from illnesses.

The final section concentrates on nursing procedures specific to veterinary pratices, and includes an introduction to medical terminology.

From handling and grooming instructions to the specifics of treating wounds and bone fractures, this book offers concise and readable guidance for anyone working with animals.
