Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Anne Barger, DVM, MS (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This veterinary clinical pathology book uses excellent figures and a good number of relevant clinical cases in its presentation of the material.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a readable resource for veterinary laboratory diagnostics.
Audience: The audience is veterinary practitioners and veterinary students, but the book is also an excellent reference for veterinary clinical pathology residents and clinical pathologists. The authors are highly respected in the field.
Features: This is a thorough review of all aspects of clinical hematology and chemistry, including laboratory methods and current technology. The book has an extensive collection of clinical cases along with images, data, and thorough explanations of pathophysiology.
Assessment: Most other general clinical pathology books use an outline format, while this one presents the information in text format, along with many color images. This edition includes new sections on molecular diagnostics of hematologic malignancies and lymphoproliferative disorders and has expanded some topics, such as acid-base disorders, into their own chapters.
