Developed from a comprehensive set of highly regarded veterinary lecture notes used in basic and clinical science courses, Fundamentals of Veterinary Clinical Pathology provides:
In depth information about common laboratory testing procedures that are used to evaluate animals, including what the assays measure and what the results tell veterinarians about the physiologic and pathophysiologic processes that may be occurring in their patients.
Explanations of the pathogeneses of abnormalities via text, tables, and figures.
Examples of clinical laboratory data and appropriate interpretations.
Photomicrographs of cells and structures in blood and urine that are of clinical or diagnostic significance.
Extensive referencing of literature to provide sources of additional information for specific topics.
The book employs a modified outline style that allows readers easy access to specific information. The emphasis on the understanding of pathologic and physiologic processes is the key feature that sets this book apart from other clinical pathology texts.
Fundamentals of Veterinary Clinical Pathology serves as an excellent reference for veterinary students, veterinarians, pathology and medicine residents, and clinical pathologists.
