On the front cover:  A chicken and a fish. Images: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. (To see the front cover enlarged, click on the image.)

On the back cover:  Dr. David Knapp, a surgeon at The Angell Memorial Animal Hospital, in Boston, Massachusetts, comforts a patient who is recovering from anesthesia. The patient is wearing the full-body wrap in order to prevent him from removing his own sutures. He had just had a mammary mass removed. The tumor was sent down to the hospital’s pathology laboratory for analysis. (NOTE: the lab results are not reported here in deference to patient confidentiality rules.) Photo: Dr. Linda J. Siperstein. (To see the back cover enlarged, click on the image.)
