Overview

Despite the renewed interest in camelids, a limited number of books and bibliographies have been published thus far. This text will acquaint the reader with the normal hematology and the wide range of individual diseases of camelids. The hematologic features of both Old World and New World camelids--normal and diseases--can be visually identified by using this atlas.

Included in A Color Atlas of Camelid Hematology are 94 full-color illustrations of camelid blood, as well as 11 tables of information for easy reference.

Three leading camelid experts share their comprehensive knowledge within the pages of this atlas. Fowler is known worldwide for his expertise, and Ulrich Wernery and Renate Wernery come from the United Arab Emirates, where 12 million dromedaries reside (70 percent of the one-humped camel population of the world).

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Hematologic features of Old World and New World camelids - normal and diseased - can be visually identified by use of this atlas. The text is bilingual with English on the left side of the page and Arabic on the right. It is designed for use by veterinarians and other professionals attending to camelid health and welfare in wildlife parks, zoos, and general practice.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Linda Berent, DVM, Diplomate ACVP(University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This book on camelid hematology has six chapters, 24 English language pages, 24 Arabic language pages, and 26 pages of color figures. The tables of normal CBC and chemistry values for various ages and species are complete and should be useful to the veterinary practitioner.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to give veterinarians a guide to normal camelid hematology and to be an aid in diagnosing diseases. The reader does get an idea of normal hematology, but this book is lacking in detail regarding pathologic changes.
Audience: It is written for the practicing veterinarian. It may be useful to those with very little background in hematology, but it lacks the detail needed to be useful in interpreting complex abnormal hematological findings.
Features: The introduction and the first chapter are the most useful. The reference value tables are excellent. The erythrocyte and leukocyte chapters are brief and only one or two sentences are devoted to changes specific to the camelid species or changes seen in disease. Many of the pictures in the atlas are out of focus and poorly stained. The magnification and the stains used are rarely stated. Pathologic changes are not pointed out with arrows, and an explanation of their significance is lacking for most figures. The marked variation in stains makes it difficult to determine what the cells are supposed to look like.
Assessment: There are currently only a small number of pictures of camelid blood in the common reference books (Hawkey & Dennett's Color Atlas of Comparative Veterinary Hematology (Iowa State University Press 1989) and Jain's Essentials of Veterinary Hematology (Lea & Febiger 1993)), but although this book has many photographs of camelid erythrocytes and leukocytes, the poor quality of the figures diminishes its usefulness.
