Description

This updated and expanded Fifth Edition of Clinical Biochemistry of Domestic Animals brings together in a single comprehensive volume all the pertinent information regarding the biochemistry of disease and non-disease states in animals. Clinical veterinarians and animal scientists now routinely use many of the same diagnostic and therapeutic tools used to identify and treat diseases and metabolic disorders in humans, making this book an indispensable teaching, learning, and application resource for anyone engaged in the care, health, and welfare of animals. This book concentrates on the various rationales and interpretations regarding the biochemistry of disease in animals. It includes newly updated chapters with current references and new chapters on clinical toxicology and avian clinical biochemistry.

Reviews

@qu:"Overall this is an impressive book offering both basic and applied information to any inquiring student or veterinarian who wishes to improve or refresh their knowledge in the area of biochemistry and its application to the diagnosis and understanding of disease in animals." @source:--VETERINARY RESEARCH COMMUNICATIONS @qu:"This book is invaluable to the veterinarian at all levels including students, residents, and practitioners? Illustrations are pertinent and of appropriate quantity? The addition of chapters addressing lysosomal storage diseases, toxicologic and avian biochemistry, and tumor cell makers is timely and valuable information." @source:---DOODY'S PUBLISHING REVIEWS @qu:"The content of the book is based on the solid foundations established in previous editions. Specialist topics have been added, with chapters on tumour markers and lysosomal storage disease. This edition deserves to replace its illustrious predecessors on the bookshelves of animal clinic biochemists and clinical pathologists." @source:--THE VETERINARY RECORD @from:Praise for the Fourth Edition @qu:"As good as [the Third Edition] is, it can always be improved--and Dr. Kaneko has done so... The comparative information provided on major animal species' biochemical data is practical and essential for not only clinical pathologists and biochemists, but also for working clinicians that utilize clinical chemistries for diagnosis and management evaluation of food animals, companion animals, and laboratory/exotic animals. This updated edition provides the clinician and researcher with relevant information for daily use. This text will continue its role as a major information resource for clinical biochemical veterinary medicine." @source:--VETERINARY HUMAN TOXICOLOGY
