About The Book

The long-awaited Sixth Edition of "Schalm?s Veterinary Hematology"¨has been revised and reorganized to increase accessibility and cohesiveness of the text. Topics are grouped within established disciplines in hematology, and outlines are now included at the beginning of each chapter.

The book features new sections on Hematotoxicity and Quality Control and Laboratory Techniques, and includes expanded sections on Laboratory Animal Hematology, Species Specific Hematology, and Hematologic Neoplasia.

With in-depth coverage on all aspects of the field, this comprehensive reference is an essential purchase for veterinary clinical hematologists, internists, and students.
