Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anne Barger, DVM, MS (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This hematology atlas uses high quality images to describe and illustrate cells and hemic parasites from multiple species. The second edition (first edition 1998) has added several chapters including avian and reptile hematology and several laboratory animal species.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide fundamentals for recognizing the normal and abnormal morphological features of blood cells of common domestic and non-domestic species.
Audience: According to the authors, the atlas is intended for both novice and experienced hematologists. It has a very wide audience, encompassing veterinary students and practitioners from multiple disciplines including small and large animal, exotic, and laboratory animal veterinarians. It will be useful for anatomic and clinical pathology trainees as well.
Features: The atlas covers morphologic features of red and white blood cells in health and disease from many different species including avian and reptile. Additionally, hemic parasites from multiple species are thoroughly covered. Many of the images are from canine blood, but diseases that are specific to a particular species are also included. The best features are the high number of excellent quality images, which make it an invaluable resource for teaching and training residents. A CD-ROM of the excellent hematology images in the text accompanies the book.
Assessment: This second edition includes many improvements: additional chapters on avian and reptile hematology and laboratory animal hematology, and the CD of hematology images. The number of high quality images make this is a useful teaching tool and excellent resource for practicing veterinarians. Compared to Color Atlas of Comparative Veterinary Hematology: Normal and Abnormal Blood Cells in Mammals, Birds and Reptiles, Hawkey and Dennett (Iowa State University Press, 1989), this book has more figures and is more current. Atlas of Veterinary Hematology: Blood and Bone Marrow of Domestic Animals, by Harvey (Saunders, 2001), covers bone marrow in addition to peripheral blood, but does not cover as many species as this atlas does.
