About the Author

Dr Harriet Brooks, BVetMed, PhD, MRCVS. Lecturer in Anatomic Pathology, The Royal Veterinary College


"This book is comprehensible in its entirety and boasts a logical structure. While it specifically suits UK student and qualified veterinary nurses, given the generic content, it will also prove a valuable resource to their international counterparts as well as to veterinary students. It will also make a functional addition to the bookshelf of veterinary practices and training providers." ( Veterinary Record, December 2010) "The author has written an excellent book for the beginning veterinary technician student, assistants or someone interested in a good overall review of clinical pathology. The book is not intended for veterinarians or experienced technicians unless they would like the review. This basic information is very well presented. I would highly recommend this text to any veterinary technician program." ( Veterinary Information Network, June 2010)
