The fifth edition of Tumors in Domestic Animals has some substantial changes from the previous edition, the most immediately striking of which is the inclusion of color, which greatly adds to the illustrative power of the images. This edition contains several new chapters and updates to other chapters. Particularly noteworthy are the new chapters on trimming tissue specimens for submission and immunohistochemistry and updates to chapter 1, the section on lymphoma, and the diagnostic and prognostic algorithms in the appendices. Overall, the information contained in this book reflects the substantial progress made in veterinary oncology during the 15 years since the previous edition was released ..... Overall, this book is reasonably priced and should be in the library of anyone with an interest in veterinary pathology or clinical oncology.
