Clinical Pathology forms the cornerstone of veterinary internal medicine. This second edition of the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Clinical Pathology builds on the strengths of the first edition and incorporates new information. It answers essential questions for busy clinicians in general practice. Biochemical tests are discussed in a clinical setting. Clinical case examples illustrate how test selection and interpretation are used in real cases, and give readers the opportunity to apply for themselves the information presented in the chapters. As a team of one clinical pathologist and one clinician, the Editors have created a truly useful manual for clinicians, budding clinical pathologists and veterinary students.
