The new edition of this popular manual has been extensively updated to reflect advances in this field, while readers will also find new chapters on inherited and cardiac disease.

Clinical case studies have been retained, allowing readers to consider how they might approach common problems and see for themselves how test selection and interpretation are applied. Body systems are dealt with in their own discrete chapters, as are urinalysis, blood cells and proteins.

Full-colour photographs and illustrations can be found throughout, which will prove indispensable to clinical pathologists, clinicians and veterinary students keen to get grips with a rapidly expanding subject.
