Highlights of the Sixth Edition include:
- New chapter on body defenses, including practical information on vaccination
- Important species differentiation, with primary attention given to the horse and cow, but also descriptions between the sheep, goat, and hog.
- Increased emphasis on the cellular and molecular mechanisms in the physiological processes, with explanation of the relationships between mechanisms and phenomena that can be observed in intact animals.
- Revised artwork, including nearly 100 new and original line drawings
The Sixth Edition also provides a number of features designed to make student learning, comprehension, and reference more efficient. Clinical extracts, especially useful in the clinical setting, are highlighted in blue throughout the text. Plus, a glossary of commonly used abbreviations is included in the appendix.
