"A unique and exciting addition to veterinary textbooks.... The authors and editors have nicely accomplished their goals of compiling up-to-date and detailed information on the stated subjects in an easily searchable and useable volume. Sections discussing test interpretation and clinical perspectives... beautifully expand the dry details of how the tests are performed to the when, why, and what now of clinical practice. This impressive textbook is well worth the cost and will make a valuable addition to any veterinarian's reference library." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, March 2010)
"There are clinical pathology books, diagnostic imaging books, and diagnostic procedure books, but this is the first of its kind. A brief review of topics includes general principles for performing fecal tests, angiography, brain ultrasonography, and cardiac catheterization. The cardiac catheterization chapter includes waveforms and critical values and is a fantastic example of the balance achieved by the authors ‐‐ the topics are both concise and thorough. Each topic is presented in a standardized format that is easy to scan, making this a valuable book for practitioners, veterinary students, and residents in training." (Doody's Reviews, March 2010)
