Overview

Veterinary Hematology and Clinical Chemistry, Second Edition is a well-illustrated, user-friendly reference on veterinary laboratory diagnostic techniques and interpretation. Covering both hematology and chemistry for a wide range of species, including birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish, the book provides an overview of these critical veterinary skills. This Second Edition includes many revisions and additions, including new chapters on molecular diagnostics of hematologic malignancies and lipid pathology, updates to reflect advances in diagnostic instrumentation and capabilities, significant revisions to the data interpretation chapter to provide introductory guidance, and current information on immunodiagnostics and laboratory diagnostics of renal, endocrine, and calcium metabolic pathologies.

Beginning with the basic principles of laboratory testing and diagnosis, the book moves into in-depth information on hematology and chemistry of common domestic and non-domestic species. Clinical case presentations, supplying case data and offering narrative discussions to promote skills, have been expanded and incorporated into the body of the book. Packed with useful information for veterinary students, technicians, pathologists, and researchers, Veterinary Hematology and Clinical Chemistry is an essential addition to any veterinary library.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: 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.
From the Publisher
“It will also prove to be of benefit for clinical pathology residents and specialists who deal with nondomestic and exotic species.” (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 March 2013)

“I found the self-study part really useful . . . A great investment to help you decipher the mysteries of the lab reports.” (Tomorrow's vets, 1 September 2013)

“This book cannot be highly recommended enough to the vet student, and I believe it is just as indispensable for the veterinary surgeon in practice – no mean feat for a textbook.” (Veterinary Practice News, 1 September 2013)

“In summary, this is a comprehensive text with a strong practical and clinical focus and. It’s clearly written and supplemented by generous numbers of quality images . . . This book has a small animal bias and as such will be of greatest interest to small animal clinicians, but will also be valuable to clinicians seeing mixed practice, or delving into providing small mammal or exotic pet clinical pathology.” (Australian Veterinary Journal, 9 September 2013)

“The second edition certainly fulfils its stated objective and is a valuable resource for its targeted audience. It will also prove be benefit for clinical pathology residents and specialists who deal with nondomestic and exotic species.” (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 March 2013)

“Overall, I think this book is well written and beautifully presented. It appears to bridge the gap between undergraduate and postgraduate readers and covers all the species likely to be encountered in mixed veterinary practice.” (Veterinary Record, 16 March 2013)

"Mary Anna Thrall, et.al.'s VETERINARY HEMATOLOGY AND CLINICAL CHEMISTRY, 2ND EDITION (9780813810270, $99.99) offers a key to understanding veterinary laboratory diagnostic techniques and interpretation and covers hematology and chemistry for a range of species to include fish, amphibians and birds. This second edition includes many revisions and additions, from new chapters on molecular diagnostics of hematologic malignancies to updates in advancements on diagnostic technology and revisions to data interpretation. Both elementary basics and advanced laboratory techniques are covered in a guide that offers over seventy case studies to help readers understanding the entire laboratory process, making for a top recommendation for veterinary reference collections." (Midwest Book Reviews, 1 December 2012)

"It's a powerful reference packed with practical applications and should be considered a 'must' for any veterinary reference library." (Midwest Book Reviews, 1 November 2012)
