Review quote

"A concise, practical and organized text...valuable to more groups than just veterinarians; veterinary technicians in clinical practice, pathologists, laboratory technicians, veterinary students and wildlife researchers will find the information useful and understandable... This book will greatly facilitate one's ability to incorporate in-house diagnostics into their practice. For those readers who already perform their own lab work, this book can offer increased competency and proficiency with interpretation. This is the must-have hematologic and cytologic reference for all veterinarians and researchers working with avian and exotic animals." Exotic DVM Magazine "Because of the numerous high-quality photographs throughout, this book functions as both a text and an atlas. The straightforward style and stepwise instructions for various techniques makes this edition a very useful reference for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and researchers involved in preparing and interpreting hematology and cytology samples from a range of atypical domestic and nondomestic species." Journal of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science "With the considerable amount of practical information provided in the Avian and Exotic Animal Hematology and Cytology, 3rd Edition, it should be in the library of veterinarians and veterinary technicians in clinical practice, pathologists, laboratory technicians, veterinary students, and those engaged in avian/exotic research." Journal of Exotic Pet Medicine
