The fifth edition of this text has been updated to include new advances in small animal oncology. The text provides exceptional detail on the pathology of cancer including an excellent explanation of how a cell becomes a malignant and the pathophysiology of metastasis.

The reader will also find a section on diagnostics that includes biopsy, cytopathology, imaging, and molecular diagnostics. There are over 100 figures that show what may be seen on radiographs, CT, MRI, and microscopic examination of malignancies. The section on therapeutics discusses surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, immunotherapy, molecular therapy, and alternative medicine. There is also a detailed section that includes specific malignancies based on the system affected. Great detail is included on the biology, incidence, clinical signs, prognostic factors, diagnostics, and treatment of each malignancy.

As it has in the past, this fifth edition will prove to be a valuable resource for the clinical oncologist as well as veterinary students and technicians. Because it is so complete, this text may be the only resource you will require to answer any questions you have on small animal oncology. It will continue to be especially useful to the veterinarian or technician working towards a specialty in oncology.
