Duncan and Prasse's Veterinary Laboratory Medicine provides readers with an excellent overview of veterinary clinical pathology. The new edition retains its elegantly simple outline format and section organization (physiology, evaluation methods, disorders, and appropriate clinical cases), enabling readers to quickly identify key words, ideas and information in the text. Each chapter is followed by a current reference list, primarily from referred professional journals. The fourth edition applies a problem-solving approach to interpretation of laboratory data. covers dogs, cats, horses, domestic ruminants, pigs, and companion birds. instructs veterinary students and practitioners in the proper interpretation of clinical laboratory data in order to form a list of differential diagnoses or to make a definitive diagnosis. emphasizes the mechanism or pathophysiology of the various abnormalities rather than specific diseases. adds and refines case studies to illustrate many of the concepts in interpretation of laboratory data includes excellent high resolution color photomicrographs and easy-to-understand tables and figures.Latimer, Kenneth S. is the author of 'Duncan & Prasse's Veterinary Laboratory Medicine Clinical Pathology', published 2003 under ISBN 9780813820705 and ISBN 0813820707.
