Detailní popis produktu
“It will also prove to be of benefit for clinical pathology residents and specialists who deal with nondomestic and exotic species.” (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 March 2013)
“I found the self-study part really useful . . . A great investment to help you decipher the mysteries of the lab reports.” (Tomorrow's vets, 1 September 2013)
“This book cannot be highly recommended enough to the vet student, and I believe it is just as indispensable for the veterinary surgeon in practice – no mean feat for a textbook.” (Veterinary Practice News, 1 September 2013)
“In summary, this is a comprehensive text with a strong practical and clinical focus and. It’s clearly written and supplemented by generous numbers of quality images . . . This book has a small animal bias and as such will be of greatest interest to small animal clinicians, but will also be valuable to clinicians seeing mixed practice, or delving into providing small mammal or exotic pet clinical pathology.” (Australian Veterinary Journal, 9 September 2013)
“The second edition certainly fulfils its stated objective and is a valuable resource for its targeted audience. It will also prove be benefit for clinical pathology residents and specialists who deal with nondomestic and exotic species.” (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 March 2013)
“Overall, I think this book is well written and beautifully presented. It appears to bridge the gap between undergraduate and postgraduate readers and covers all the species likely to be encountered in mixed veterinary practice.” (Veterinary Record, 16 March 2013)
