"The user-friendly layout of clear and colourful headings and subheadings makes information easy to locate, and it is presented in an engaging manner...A real assest of this book lies in the apprendices, where the reader will find extremely? useful algorithims that provide at a glance diagnoses for commonly occurring haematological problems, such as regenerative? anaemia and plateley/ coagulation deficiencies...Overall, its key features all combine into a book that would benefit both veterinary practitioners and students alike- providing a useful revision tool to both parties, as well as encouraging the advancement of knowledge across the haematological field."

"This book is designed as a ready reference for all with an interest in veterinary haematology, from the student of veterinary medicine through to t he specialist in clinical pathology. This is a new edition of a previously published book and I think it will be universally seen as an improvement on what was already an excellent resource. Without doubt, the feature of this book which distinguishes it as a must-have is the number and quality of illustrations, both photomicrographs and drawn figures...The style of this book is to present haematology from a physiological and pathophysiological perspective. Chapters are divided into sections on erythrocytes, leucocytes and coagulation, rather than being divided according to diagnosis: for example, infectious diseases, neoplastic diseases, intoxications. As a clinician I find the chosen approach more useful as it supports a problemoriented approach to the case management style of learning more than the scholarly approach to learning which starts with the diagnosis and works backwards.
