"I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in learning how to work up a case with the use of hematology and cytology, how to interpret, how to stain and read slides, and how to follow up. An excellent book to keep in the break room for veterinarians and technicians to read and discuss". (Vin Book Reviews, 2011)

"The book covers a wide variety of species -- mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish. Each case includes a pertinent signalment and history, physical exam findings, hematological or cytological results and interpretation, and other appropriate diagnostic results that help readers form a complete picture of the case. The text is augmented by full-color pictures of blood smears and cytology specimens for each case. Of particular value in this book is the detailed history and signalment provided for each case. The book includes the final diagnosis in most cases and any follow-up that occurred. These features make this book an extremely practical resource for anyone seeing these patients.This is a well-written and designed book providing real-life examples to veterinarians and veterinary students working with nontraditional species." (Doody's, January 2011)

"The cases are presented in an easy to follow format.... The color photos and microscopic images are beautifully done representations of what is seen in these diagnostic cases. I would recommend this book for the practicing veterinary technician as well as the practitioner that works with avian and exotic animal patients. It is a great reference for anyone involved in the hematology or cytological examination of exotics. Exotic practices will find it a very useful addition to their library." -VSPN (November 2010)
