About this book

Introducing a new, beautifully illustrated full colour reference on veterinary haematology and clinical chemistry that is also both comprehensive and practical. From basic principles and laboratory techniques to diagnostic evaluation, readers will find equally concise and clear coverage of both hematology and clinical chemistry for many domestic and exotic species. In additon, features such as numerous full colour and black and white illustrations, coverage of avian and exotic hematology, and an extensive use of case studies make this reference a must have for any veterinary reference library. Features: Respected authorship - lets the reader learn from the experts in veterinary hematology and clinical chemistry. Approaches problems by lab abnormality, and gives a discussion of what diseases the abnormality indicates (rather than being diseases based). This reinforces the progression of diagnostic interpretation with first the laboratory findings and then the interpretation and eventual diagnosis. Extensive use of case studies grouped by lab abnormalities. These case discussions help reinforce important concepts. Avian and exotic hematology and clinical chemistry is covered. Normal and abnormal examples of blood cells are found in the 350+ full colour & 165 black and white illustrations. As hematology is a highly visual science, clear colour photographs of abnormal and normal cells help the student to understand the concepts being discussed. Emphasis is often given to the relative usefulness of different tests of an organ or for a disease in order to provide practical information on when to choose what tests. Different systems frequently integrated together in discussion of laboratory pathology. Clinically orientated approach to pathophysiology of laboratory changes in disease. The authors have defined the existing North American curriculum
