Published Reviews

    "The user-friendly layout of clear and colourful headings and subheadings makes information easy to locate, and it is presented in an engaging manner...A real assest of this book lies in the apprendices, where the reader will find extremely  useful algorithims that provide at a glance diagnoses for commonly occurring haematological problems, such as regenerative  anaemia and plateley/ coagulation deficiencies...Overall, its key features all combine into a book that would benefit both veterinary practitioners and students alike- providing a useful revision tool to both parties, as well as encouraging the advancement of knowledge across the haematological field."
