Written for veterinary undergraduates, this comprehensive text explores the often obscured link between disease at the cell and tissue level, and that encountered by the working clinician. Based on a course taught by the editors, the book attempts to strike a balance between the needs of the student and specialist knowledge. Each chapter explains patterns of disease in particular organs and relates them to both the pathophysiologic changes and the outward appearance of the sick animal.
