Rezensionen
"This book is comprehensible in its entirety and boasts a logicalstructure. While it specifically suits UK student and qualifiedveterinary nurses, given the generic content, it will also prove avaluable resource to their international counterparts as well as toveterinary students. It will also make a functional addition to thebookshelf of veterinary practices and training providers."(Veterinary Record, December 2010)

"The author has written an excellent book for the beginningveterinary technician student, assistants or someone interested ina good overall review of clinical pathology. The book is notintended for veterinarians or experienced technicians unless theywould like the review. This basic information is very wellpresented. I would highly recommend this text to any veterinarytechnician program." (Veterinary Information Network, June2010)
