BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Clinical Pathology 3rd Edition PDF Download
It is only really in editing this edition that it has become apparent just how many advances in the field have been made over that time. For the busy practitioner there have been many improvements in the variety, reliability and cost effectiveness of in-house machinery. For the enthusiastic veterinary surgeon or client, techniques such as immuno chemistry, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and genetic testing have opened up new channels of definitive diagnosis.
It was decided to keep the format of the manual the same due to its previous success and its suitability for use in general practice. The first two chapters provide an introduction to the correct use of clinical pathology data and, with increasing awareness among the veterinary profession of evidence based medicine and clinical audit, provide a framework for correct test selection and interpretation.
The sections on haematology have been updated to include new developments in technology and all the systems based chapters have been rewritten, incorporating the latest research. There are new chapters on cardiac disease and genetic disease reflecting advances in these areas and the popular format of case examples at the end of each chapter has been retained to allow readers to evaluate their own learning. The appendix section has been expanded to provide a quick reference for the practitioner who needs to find out the correct sample type in a hurry, or make an immediate interpretation of some results.
We have been fortunate that a team of highly qualified professionals agreed to write for the manual and would like to thank them all for their hard work and enthusiasm to share their knowledge. We would also like to thank the BSAVA publications team members who worked tirelessly to see the book through to completion. Book Download Free
