 This edition, as well as illustrating and describing the usual range of lesions and conditions, expands on some of the less commonly seen lesions and broadens the scope of stains and chemistry. The first two editions covered the groundwork for cytology in dogs and cats, but enhanced techniques and more up-to-date methods called for an update in procedures. Many additional lesions have been included.

New authors were added and attention has been given to the quality of the more than 1,200 photos, including better, more accurate color matching and clearer images as well as variations that may be encountered.

All chapters have been updated and include advances in terminology and diagnostics, and advanced staining protocols.

The book is an atlas of microscopic cell views, as well as some EM views. The scope of material includes all body systems and fluids and pinpoints those areas where cytology will have the greatest diagnostic value. Discussions of differential diagnoses accompany the photomicrographs

Advice on cell collection is included. Numerous tables help with both diagnostics and interpretations. Some tables in the form of drawings, show progression of conditions as illustrated in cell appearance. The reader will appreciate the number and quality of photos.

Normal cell appearance is also illustrated in such conditions as estrus, ovary condition, as well as diseased tissues (adenocarcinoma, neoplasias).

The reader will first note the improvement in clarity and color matching in the microscopic views, which fills the book.

Fine adjustments of the microscope are explained, as are the collection tools and methods that better protect the integrity of the sample.

Information boxes are separated from tables by color and add valuable advice and facts.

This book should be opened as soon as it is received so the clinician might appreciate the level of information presented and the new information and illustrations available. It is possible that this book will replace most cytology books currently in the clinic library.
