“The third edition of Veterinary Hematology: Atlas of Common Domestic and Non-Domestic Species continues to include the wide variety of species featured in the second edition and also provides an introduction to amphibian hematology…. This book will be particularly helpful when an unfamiliar cell or morphological variant is encountered during blood smear evaluation because it is sufficiently concise to allow users to scan the relevant chapter and find a matching image…. This atlas is ideal for veterinarians and veterinary students and technicians who are seeking a broad introduction to blood smear evaluation of companion, farm, laboratory, and exotic animals. It will also be beneficial for experienced hematologists who occasionally evaluate blood smears from uncommon species.” - JAVMA, Mar 15, 2020, Vol.256, No.6
