SKU 9781789182378 Categories , Tag



Anatomic Pathology for Veterinary Clinicians is a concise guide for practising vets on anatomic pathology, aiding the reader’s understanding of pathology, thus allowing optimisation of diagnostic tests.

Anatomic Pathology for Veterinary Clinicians will teach practitioners how to:

  • take quality biopsy samples to get better results
  • understand histopathology reports
  • know when additional tests are warranted and are likely to give clinically useful information.

This book aims to set out protocols for how to take samples correctly, how to submit them correctly, understand reports and be confident with requesting follow-up reports, thus closing the gap between veterinary practice and pathology practice, and establishing practices that benefit both.

Anatomic Pathology for Veterinary Clinicians is an ideal textbook for veterinary surgeons and nurses in clinical practice; including general practice, clinical specialists, and people training in clinical specialties; vets training to become pathologists, vets interested in a career in pathology and undergraduates with an interest in pathology.

The book is part of the Veterinary Atlases series. Full colour textbooks, containing very high quality photographs, they are an excellent resource for veterinary practitioners and students alike. The Veterinary Atlases series includes the following books:


Melanie Dobromylskyj works as a diagnostic histopathologist for Finn Pathologists, a large commercial diagnostic laboratory based in the UK, and covers both first opinion and referral practice cases, predominantly canine and feline.
