Overview

Long-trusted and respected in the field, Diagnostic Cytology and Hematology of the Dog and Cat, 3rd Edition is a complete resource for developing and enriching the knowledge and skills needed for clinical laboratory diagnostics. Detailed illustrations and descriptions of cytologic and hematologic samples enable you to diagnose both common and uncommon diseases in dogs and cats. This concise source of microscopic evaluation techniques and interpretation guidelines for organ tissue, blood, and other body fluid specimens provides you with a basic understanding of sample collection and specimen preparation. Plus, helpful and easier-to-understand algorithms are generously distributed throughout the text, providing clear, easy-to-follow guidelines for diagnosis and treatment.

• Detailed instructions for in-house laboratory evaluation, as well as submission and transport of samples for commercial laboratory interpretation, are featured in tips and pitfalls throughout discussions on specimen preparation and diagnosis.
• Easier-to-follow algorithms, additional tables, and a user-friendly format allow quick and easy access to the most relevant information needed in a cytologic diagnosis.

• Over 1,000 high-quality illustrations help you identify normal versus abnormal cells, enabling you to make accurate diagnoses.
• Four new chapters—Cell Types and Criteria of Malignancy, Selected Infectious Agents, Round Cell Tumors, and The Pancreas—present detailed information on these topics and how they relate to disease.
• Highly-respected expert contributors share their expertise from both academia and commercial diagnostic laboratories to provide the best and most current information available.
• The Lung and Intrathoracic Structures, The Gastrointestinal Tract, and Effusions: Abdominal, Thoracic, and Pericardial chapters have been expanded for more complete and up-to-date coverage of these important topics.

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

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Amy L. MacNeill, DVM, PhD, DACVP (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This comprehensive book discusses collection and evaluation of cytologic and hematologic samples from dogs and cats. The figures are excellent examples of the disease processes discussed in the text. The algorithms designed to guide readers to the correct diagnoses are fair to good, but may be slightly misleading if the readers do not pay close attention to the legend. The last edition of this book was published in 1999, and this edition provides updated and additional material that makes it an extremely useful new resource for small animal practitioners.
Purpose: The book is intended to improve laboratory and interpretative skills of veterinary clinicians and cytology students so that they can collect, prepare, assess, and interpret diagnostic samples from dogs and cats adequately. This is an excellent resource for this purpose and it includes material that is not found in other cytology books.
Audience: The authors intend this book to educate and guide veterinary clinicians and cytology students. The majority of contributors are board certified veterinary pathologists and all are veterinarians who are highly respected in the field of veterinary clinical pathology.
Features: Like most veterinary cytology books, this one covers well lesions of the skin and subcutaneous tissues, normal and abnormal cytology of many internal organs, and fluid analysis. It also includes more extensive information about external ear canal, gastrointestinal, pancreatic, and testicular cytology than previous books. The information in most other chapters is up to date and well explained. However, chapter 13 on the musculoskeletal system should be expanded to include additional staining techniques and diagnostics that can be used to further differentiate lesions in this system. Round cell tumors are overly discussed and some figures of infectious organisms are repetitive, but this does not take away from the information provided.
Assessment: The information and figures in this book are excellent. However, the multiple diagnostic algorithms in each chapter don't necessarily add to the knowledge base of the reader. In fact, some algorithms may lead readers to skip important information in the text. Although this book does not include large animal cytology or hematology, it is more comprehensive than Freeman (Self-Assessment Colour Review of Veterinary Cytology: Dog, Cat, Horse and Cow (Manson Publishing, 2007). Please note that the objectives of Freeman's book are quite different from this one). The objectives and content of this book are similar to Raskin (Atlas of Canine and Feline Cytology (Saunders, 2001)). Raskin compares aspects of cytology and histology from several lesions, a discussion that is lacking in this book. This aspect may make Raskin a better reference for residents in veterinary clinical pathology. However, the high quality of the figures and updated material in this book may make it easier for veterinary students and practitioners to use. The hematology and bone marrow aspirate sections are comparable to Raskin. These areas are more fully described in Harvey (Atlas of Veterinary Hematology: Blood and Bone Marrow of Domestic Animals (Saunders, 2001)). This edition also contains information that is not included in previous versions of the book, or in other books, making it an excellent and welcome additional reference for veterinary practitioners.
From the Publisher
This book is already in its 3rd edition. It has become one of the standard books of veterinary diagnostic cytology. The chapters on collecting material, on the cell types and malignancy criteria, on cutaneous and subcutaneous lesions, on lymph node, and on cerebrospinal fluid have many new pictures and have largely been rewritten. Several algorithms are provided which give helpful guidelines summarising the text. New chapters on selected infectious agents, round cell tumours, the gastrointestinal tract, and pancreas have been added. In contrast to earlier editions there is no longer a section with separate colour plates. However, no one will miss this as there are already so many pictures included in the separate chapters. The quality of these pictures has further improved and is generally excellent. Everybody in companion animal clinics who is interested in cytology should have this book on his or her bookshelf. Those who have an earlier version should consider upgrading to this new edition. European Journal of Companion Animal Practice, August 2008

Who should buy this book? Well certainly veterinary clinicians and students should have one as it provides an excellent source of reference, and I would suggest that every veterinary clinical pathology laboratory and veterinary university library should also ensure they have a copy. It is an excellent and very informative book. I would also recommend it as a valuable text for well-experienced veterinary clinical pathologists. My copy is already heavily in use in the laboratory and in teaching. Asger Lundorff Jensen, The Veterinary Journal (182), June 2009

Walter E. Hoffmann
This book describes the cytology of the dog and catwith considerable detail and with photomicrographic examples. Thisedition shows considerable improvement over the first edition publishedin 1989. The purpose is to provide students, interns, residents, andpractitioners with knowledge of cytologic and hematologic techniquesand interpretations. These are worthy objectives and such a book isclearly needed. This book meets the editors' objectives. Accordingto the editors, it is written for students, interns, residents, andpractitioners. I agree, but also believe internists in specialtypractices should be included. The contributors are credibleauthorities. This book describes cytologic sample collection andhandling techniques. It then describes the possible cytologic findingsin each organ system, including both normal and abnormal findings. Incomparison to the first edition, this edition covers all the systemsmore uniformly and thoroughly with increased numbers ofphotomicrographs. I feel this edition is of good quality and will beuseful to everyone at all levels of cytologic experience. Theimprovements in this edition, especially the increase inphotomicrographs, more than justify replacing the firstedition.
