With an emphasis on the disease conditions of dogs, cats, horses, swine, cattle and small ruminants, Jubb, Kennedy, and Palmer's Pathology of Domestic Animals, 6th Edition continues its long tradition of being the most comprehensive reference book on common domestic mammal pathology. Using a body systems approach, veterinary pathology experts provide overviews of general system characteristics, reactions to insult, and disease conditions that are broken down by type of infectious or toxic insult affecting the anatomical subdivisions of each body system. The sixth edition now boasts a new full-color design, including more than 2,000 high-resolution images of normal and abnormal organs, tissues, and cells. Updated content also includes evolved coverage of disease agents such as the Schmallenberg virus, porcine epidemic diarrhea virus, and the porcine deltacoronavirus; plus new information on molecular-based testing, including polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and in-situ hybridization, keep you abreast of the latest diagnostic capabilities.
'Much easier to read’ was the important conclusion I came to, having spent a little time looking at the latest edition of ‘Jubb and Kennedy’. The relatively simple step of increasing line spacing, and the use of subheadings and bullet points, makes reading any of the volumes of this edition much less daunting. The contents are arranged into ‘body systems’, and include aspects of the incidence and manifestation of different diseases in different tissues and organs. The improved format will ensure that it will continue to be used by pathologists, perhaps in particular, those undergoing training; some introductory sections bring together a lot of useful, as well as interesting, background information.The Veterinary Record, October 2008
