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. Whenever possible, diseases and conditions are grouped by common mechanisms or processes to promote a conceptual understanding of laboratory data that can be generally applied across many species. New to the second edition are additional disorders, diagnostic tests, illustrations, images, references, and pathophysiologic explanations. This text has proven valuable to students and veterinarians wanting a fundamental understanding of veterinary clinical pathology.

Editorial Reviews

A textbook for students entering the specialty, focusing on interpreting laboratory data rather than generating it. The goal is to inform students about assays used to investigate pathological states in domestic animals, diseases and other conditions to be considered when results are abnormal, processes that result in abnormal data, and identifying biological structures in clinical samples that indicate or suggest pathological states.

Reviewer: Anne Barger, DVM, MS (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This thorough textbook covers basic veterinary clinical pathology concepts. This edition includes more images and color plates.
Purpose: The purpose is to explain the physiological, pathological, and analytical conditions or disorders responsible for abnormal laboratory data. These are worthy objectives and essential in teaching veterinary students and training residents.
Audience: Veterinary students, practicing veterinarians, and clinical pathology residents are the intended audience.
Features: The book covers all areas of clinical pathology including clinical chemistry, hematology, blood gas, protein electrophoresis, and quality assurance. Aspects of cytology and bone marrow examination are new to this edition. The figures are one of the book's best features because they truly assist students in understanding the underlying mechanism of a process. Additional color plates have been added to this edition, which make the book more useful. The outline format may not be a good learning tool for all students, but the level of detail and information in the outline is appropriate.
Assessment: This is a useful book for veterinary students, residents, and practitioners. Although the content is comparable to other texts, the level of detail is greater. The authors have made significant improvements in this new edition with the addition of a chapter on bone marrow and lymphoid tissue and the additional color plates.
From the Publisher
“Almost all the chapters begin wtih an expanded, useful list of topics. This textbook is particularly useful for residents in clinical pathology and internal medicine training programs. It is an outstanding reference for clinical pathologists and anyone involved in performing and interpreting clinical pathology data. Owners of the first edition should consider purchasing this book if the enhancements are essential to their job responsibilities.” - Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, December 2008
