Clinical Pathology for the Veterinary Team will help experiencedveterinary technicians set up various clinical laboratorydiagnostic tests. It provides a good explanation of basiclaboratory practices, the underlying concepts of many laboratorytests, and the physiology of common disease conditions. This bookis well worth the price. (Journal of the American VeterinaryMedical Association, December 2010) This book provides a good overall summary of basic clinicalpathology in small animals. Although it is fairly short andconcise, it contains all the necessary relevant information andincludes a CD that takes readers thorough six complicated cases,step by step. This is a useful book that would be a handy referenceto have in a practice. It is easy to read, concise, andinformative. Although it is aimed at small animal veterinary teams,it includes limited information about large animal species, whichis important for a good, general understanding. (Doodys,December 2010) Clinical Pathology for the Veterinary Team offers a finerecourse for technical team members involved in clinical diagnosticevaluation. Machinery calibration, normal anatomy, clinicaldiagnostics and more are revealed in chapters that provide keytechnical information for Obtaining and evaluating samples,surveying the disease process, the progress of identification andtreatment, and including a DVD with interactive cases. Vetcollections need this!
