Editorial Reviews

Review

The addition of colour photos and tables throughout make for a much lighter read - the information is well presented. Procedure boxes are present throughout the text, and this makes the book a useful quick-reference guide to performing less familiar laboratory procedures in a clinical situation. The text also offers a detailed analysis of the chemistry and physiology behind the tests or procedures performed, which gives the reader a greater understanding of how results are generated. This is a huge advantage when interpreting results, particularly when unexpected results are obtained. This book would be a most welcome addition to the practice shelves. Although it may well be stationed in the practice laboratory, this does not do the text justice. It manages to bridge the gap between clinical veterinary medicine and laboratory medicine and, therefore, can provide useful information, from diagnostic sampling to the veterinary interpretation of results obtained. Despite being marketed for laboratory technicians, most veterinarians in practice would benefit from giving the book a quiet read.

I grabbed this for my team at my animal hospital and they find it to be very informative. Their complaint about its functional use is that the pictures are not labeled with the common names which makes it difficult for quickly identifying and diagnosing intestinal parasites and the like. I would love to see one of these that has a separate appendix with image references for that purpose. Otherwise, the language is very clear and it seems up-to-date in terms of how medicine is being practiced now.

I purchased this for a class but keep it with me for reference. The detailed instructions on common procedures is great for when you need to brush up or are using a less automated machine (includes centrifuge rpms). My only complaint is that I wish there was more information on ear cytology and pictures of yeast.

quite a number of mislabeling of pictures in the book. there are also things that aren't correct according to my professors that aren't right in the book either. if this book isn't a requirement I would recommend that you get a different one.

Im currently in school for vet technology and this book is very hard to understand at times. I'm just starting out and I feel like I'm reading gibberish! I would not recommend this book if you haven't taken classes on this stuff before

This book is a great source for experienced technicians. It is however, the WORST book for technicians going to school that are beginning to learn about clinical pathology. The chapters were set up fine but the content was info overload (I know thats the point, but im just beginning to go over this subject). Its great as a resource used with other books. This book confused me a lot since my learning style didn't match how the book was written as well as me not being that educated in the subject to begin with. It was not a good book to use in my Clinical Pathology class. But a great resource though.

This was better as a supplemental guide than the text for the course--there were many errors in the parasite identifying section. A new edition is coming out, so hopefully that gets resolved.

Good basic info but doesn't go into enough details to be useful past your first semester in school. And even then you will be referencing other books as this book is simply too basic.

I would highly recommend this text to all veterinary technicians, students and current techs. I plan to keep this book as a reference when I work in a practice. The book fills in all the gaps missed in class lectures. There has not been a week, this semester, that I have not read this text.
