Overview

This book provides in-depth information about common clinical laboratory assays that are used to evaluate domestic mammals, including what assays measure, sample or assay conditions that affect results, and what results indicate about the physiologic or pathologic state of a patient.

This text has proven valuable to students and veterinarians wanting a fundamental understanding of veterinary clinical pathology.
