Physiology of Domestic Animals is a state-of-the-art textbook co-authored by experienced professors and researchers in animal physiology. The book is designed for use by students of veterinary-, animal-, and agricultural sciences. It emphasizes functional aspects of animal- and veterinary science, and is aimed at developing the problem-solving skills needed for careers in veterinary medicine and animal science. Physiology of Domestic Animals also provides an ideal basis for university courses in general mammalian and avian physiology.

The textbook is divided into 21 chapters. Frequent cross-referencing is used to emphasize the manner in which the individual cells and organs of the body collaborate to create a single functional unit. Clinical examples are included in the chapters, selected to illustrate the normal functions of the body. Short statements summarizing central points in the text, are given in the margin. Inserted questions will reveal whether adequate understanding of important issues has been achieved.

A basic knowledge of physics, chemistry, and biochemistry is required to comprehend physiology. The book therefore contains an introductory chapter presenting an overview of some of the most relevant topics of these fields.

There are no logical boundaries between cell biology and physiology, and knowledge of cell biology is a necessary platform for the understanding of animal physiology. Consequently, the book offers an introduction to basic cell biology, and describe how cells interact and contribute to the various functions of tissues and organs (chapters two and three).

In the comprehensive and user-friendly index, bold page numbers direct the reader to main descriptions or definitions, while numbers in italics refer to figures.
