Veterinary Medical Terminology provides a visual approach to learning medical terms and understanding the basics of veterinary medicine. A systematic process of breaking down medical terms into their component parts allows readers to comprehend the root medical concepts and apply critical thinking skills when faced with new and unfamiliar medical terminology. Case studies exemplify how medical terminology would be experienced in an actual veterinary practice.

The software provided with this course makes review of the concepts fun through use of interactive games and audio pronunciation of the terms.
