Diagnostic Cytology and Hematology of the Horse is a practical reference that presents common clinical findings in an easy-to-use text/atlas format. A general chapter discusses sample collections and techniques, followed by a 'systems' approach and chapters on specific types of fluid. Within systems chapters, normal findings are established and then abnormal findings are presented by class of problems, such as bacterial lesions, fungal lesions, parasitic lesions, etc. in the case of the eye. Algorithms on sample evaluations enhance text discussions by guiding readers to the most likely cytologic diagnosis. In addition, a color plate section features 64 illustrations for convenient comparison of cell types and infectious agents. A detailed index makes this edition even more useful as a quick clinical reference, ideal for helping readers understand correct collection and handling procedures, avoid costly errors, and make accurate diagnoses.


"This is an essential book for diagnostic clinical pathologists and a very useful book for practitioners who regularly collect samples for cytology." Dr MF McConnell, Australian Veterinary Journal, October 2002
