Review quote

"Pathologic Basis of Veterinary Disease is now in its fifth edition and continues to be one of the essential veterinary pathology texts...The use of frequent summary boxes and tables?with key facts is a very featureof both sections of the book...It is reasonably priced relative to most specialist texts, and would make a sound investment for anyone interested in discovering more about the fascinating world of veterinary pathology." Veterinary Record, January 2012 "This book details the reasons behind and the mechanisms of various conditions that practitioners will have to deal with in their professional career...Numerous pictures, illustrations and tables provide additional ways of clearly understanding the different processes...This book is a wonderful tool for veterinary students. However, it can also be extremely useful for vets already in practice, wishing to better understand the pathophysiology of diseases." Tomorrow Vets, January 2013
