Clinical Pathology for the Veterinary Team will help experienced veterinary technicians set up various clinical laboratory diagnostic tests. It provides a good explanation of basic laboratory practices, the underlying concepts of many laboratory tests, and the physiology of common disease conditions. This book is well worth the price. (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, December 2010) This book provides a good overall summary of basic clinical pathology in small animals. Although it is fairly short and concise, it contains all the necessary relevant information and includes a CD that takes readers thorough six complicated cases, step by step. This is a useful book that would be a handy reference to have in a practice. It is easy to read, concise, and informative. Although it is aimed at small animal veterinary teams, it includes limited information about large animal species, which is important for a good, general understanding. (Doodys, December 2010) Clinical Pathology for the Veterinary Team offers a fine recourse for technical team members involved in clinical diagnostic evaluation. Machinery calibration, normal anatomy, clinical diagnostics and more are revealed in chapters that provide key technical information for Obtaining and evaluating samples, surveying the disease process, the progress of identification and treatment, and including a DVD with interactive cases. Vet collections need this! (THE MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW, November 2010) Rosenfeld, a veterinarian who is associated with an education corporation that specializes in seminar training for the hospital team, and Dial (veterinary science and microbiology, U. of Arizona) provide a resource for technical veterinary team members performing clinical diagnostic evaluation in small animal lab work.
