Veterinary Hematology: A Diagnostic Guide and Color Atlas


Combining essential hematology content with the diagnostic features of an atlas, Veterinary Hematology: A Diagnostic Guide and Color Atlas delivers all the information you need to accurately assess and diagnose the blood diseases of common domestic animals ― including dogs, cats, horses, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, and llamas. This all-in-one resource utilizes a clinically-oriented and user-friendly approach to guide you through the processes of selecting relevant diagnostic tests, collecting and preparing samples, interpreting sample results, and determining their clinical significance. High-resolution photomicrographs, full-color illustrations, and excellent schematic drawings, tables, and quick-reference algorithms help you clearly visualize these concepts and procedures.

    • Two books in one gives you the information of a user-friendly, clinical textbook and the diagnostic features of a color atlas in a single reference.

      • Sample collection, staining procedures, and diagnostic techniques 
      • Differentiating features of malignant and benign hematologic disorders
