The Veterinary Hematology and Clinical Chemistry, 2nd Edition (PDF) is a reference that is both comprehensively detailed and easy to use. It focuses on the diagnostic procedures and interpretations used in veterinary laboratories. Both hematology and chemistry are discussed for a wide variety of animal taxa, such as reptiles, amphibians, birds, and fish. This essential veterinary knowledge is covered in detail in the aforementioned publication. This Second Edition contains numerous revisions and additions, such as new chapters on molecular diagnostics of hematologic malignancies and lipid pathology; updates to reflect advancements 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 endocrine, renal, and calcium metabolic pathologies.
Following a brief introduction to the fundamentals of laboratory testing and diagnosis, the ebook delves further into topics such as the hematology and chemistry of common non-domestic and domestic species. Expanded clinical case presentations, complete with case data and narrative discussions designed to foster skill development, have been incorporated into the main body of the book. The second edition of Veterinary Hematology and Clinical Chemistry should be a staple in the collection of any veterinary library since it contains a wealth of knowledge that is applicable to veterinary students, pathologists, technicians, and researchers.
