Reviews for Clinical Laboratory Animal Medicine: An Introduction

When a book's title includes the words An Introduction, one often automatically assumes that it is not an extensive, all-encompassing tome where answers to almost every question can be found. But oh, what an introduction is provided in the fifth edition of Clinical Laboratory Animal Medicine: An Introduction!...I predict this book will be instrumental in training the next generation of laboratory animal scientists, veterinary technicians, and veterinarians. - JAVMA, Mar 15, 2020, Vol.256, No.6
