Using case examples of canine and feline necropsies, Veterinary Necropsy of Dogs and Cats is a practical guide to performing a necropsy, understanding anatomical connections and underlying pathological findings. It takes a body systems approach to cover the cardiovascular system, respiratory system, digestive system etc. chapter by chapter, each including a clinical history, laboratory test results and illustrated pathological findings.

Each chapter contains the case report and a self-assessment review with model answers at core and specialist levels. Throughout are tips on sample collection, lesion recognition, common artefacts and pitfalls and advice from experienced practitioners on building confidence and competence with general procedures and dealing with complications and difficult cases.

Veterinary Necropsy of Dogs and Cats is a useful resource for undergraduates, qualified vets and pathologists as it provides self-assessment review at different levels, and cases are mapped to Day One Competencies. The approach is very practical and accessible, with advice and commentary from the authors, based on their experience.
