This is the ideal guide for veterinarians and students wishing to organize their thinking and update their knowledge of organ systems physiology. The text consists of chapters of multiple choice questions, each of which is followed by the answer and a thorough explanation. Author Dr. Engelking covers all the section of physiology relevant for veterinary students including sections on body fluids and compartments, neuromuscular physiology and special senses, respiration, cardiovascular physiology, kidneys. All the questions are written in a format that is consistent with the boards.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
