Description

Veterinary Hematology and Clinical Chemistry, Second Edition is a well-illustrated, user-friendly reference on veterinary laboratory diagnostic techniques and interpretation. Covering both hematology and chemistry for a wide range of species, including birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish, the book provides an overview of these critical veterinary skills. This Second Edition includes many revisions and additions, including new chapters on molecular diagnostics of hematologic malignancies and lipid pathology, updates to reflect advances in diagnostic instrumentation and capabilities, significant revisions to the data interpretation chapter to provide introductory guidance, and current information on immunodiagnostics and laboratory diagnostics of renal, endocrine, and calcium metabolic pathologies.

Beginning with the basic principles of laboratory testing and diagnosis, the book moves into in-depth information on hematology and chemistry of common domestic and non-domestic species. Clinical case presentations, supplying case data and offering narrative discussions to promote skills, have been expanded and incorporated into the body of the book. Packed with useful information for veterinary students, technicians, pathologists, and researchers, Veterinary Hematology and Clinical Chemistry is an essential addition to any veterinary library.

Reviews

“It will also prove to be of benefit for clinical pathology residents and specialists who deal with nondomestic and exotic species.”  (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 March 2013)

“I found the self-study part really useful . . . A great investment to help you decipher the mysteries of the lab reports.”  (Tomorrow's vets, 1 September 2013)

“This book cannot be highly recommended enough to the vet student, and I believe it is just as indispensable for the veterinary surgeon in practice – no mean feat for a textbook.”  (Veterinary Practice News, 1 September 2013)

“In summary, this is a comprehensive text with a strong practical and clinical focus and. It’s clearly written and supplemented by generous numbers of quality images . . . This book has a small animal bias and as such will be of greatest interest to small animal clinicians, but will also be valuable to clinicians seeing mixed practice, or delving into providing small mammal or exotic pet clinical pathology.”  (Australian Veterinary Journal, 9 September 2013)

“The second edition certainly fulfils its stated objective and is a valuable resource for its targeted audience.  It will also prove be benefit for clinical pathology residents and specialists who deal with nondomestic and exotic species.”  (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 March 2013)

“Overall, I think this book is well written and beautifully presented.  It appears to bridge the gap between undergraduate and postgraduate readers and covers all the species likely to be encountered in mixed veterinary practice.”  (Veterinary Record, 16 March 2013)
