    Review quote
    "The author has written an excellent book for the beginning veterinary technician student, assistants or someone interested in a good overall review of clinical pathology...I would highly recommend this text to any veterinary technician program." (The Vin Store, June 2010) "It is obvious that [the author's] knowledge is extensive and her passion for her subject is woven throughout the book." "The author has written an excellent book for the beginning veterinary technician student, assistants or someone interested in a good overall review of clinical pathology. The book is not intended for veterinarians or experienced technicians unless they would like the review. This basic information is very well presented. I would highly recommend this text to any veterinary technician program." (Veterinary Information Network, June 2010)
