Genre: Medical

This title provides veterinary students and non-specialist with a case study base workbook which serves as a guide to effective use and interpretation of clinical chemistry laboratory methods in domestic animals. There are over 100 case studies involving real patients and findings in dogs, cats, horses, lamas, alpacas, pot belled pigs and ferrets. Case studies consist of patient history, physical examination findings, and clinicopthologic data such as CBC, urinalysis, cytology or fluid analysis. A summary is given for each patient that includes a description of follow up tests and response to treatment. Multiple cases of common diseases are included to illustrate the variety of clinciopathologic findings with the same diagnosis depending on individual patient factors. Diagnostic dilemmas in which different diseases may present with similar clinical signs and laboratory data are also included.
