Use the veterinarian’s #1 reference on general pathology and the pathology of organ systems! Pathologic Basis of Veterinary Disease, 7th Edition helps
you understand and diagnose diseases of domestic animals by using the
latest scientific and medical research. Focusing on dogs, cats horses,
cattle, sheep, goats, and pigs, this reference describes and vividly
illustrates and explores the pathogeneses of animal diseases, how cells
and tissues respond to injury, and the morphology (lesions) of this
injury. New to this edition is basic coverage of tumor, inflammatory,
and microbial cytology. Edited by veterinary pathologist James F.
Zachary and a team of expert veterinary pathologists, this book includes
access to an enhanced eBook with every new print purchase, featuring a
fully searchable version of the entire text, an image collection, and
much more - and available on a variety of devices.
Clear, up-to-date illustrations and explanations of the macroscopic (gross) and microscopic lesions resulting from diseases occurring in domestic animals
Complete coverage of both general pathology and the pathology of organ systems that includes the latest research, practice, and diagnostic information on disease mechanisms, pathogenesis, and lesions.
Clear explanations of disease mechanisms that describe cell, tissue, and organ system responses to injury and infection.
Easy-to-follow organizationfor each systemic disease chapter
including a brief review of the study of diseases that occur in
specific tissues, organs, and organ systems, with basic principles
related to anatomy, structure, and function, followed by congenital and
functional abnormalities and discussions of infectious disease
responses, helping students apply principles to veterinary practice.
More than 2,100 full-color illustrations featuring color
photographs, schematics, flow charts, and diagrammatic representations
of disease processes as well as summary tables and boxes, making it
easier to understand difficult concepts.
Content on cellular and organ system pathology updated throughout the book, with expanded coverage of genetics and disease.
Key Readings Index in each chapter with page numbers for key topics.
Essential Concept boxes in each General Pathology chapter break down complicated topics that are critical to understanding lesions and pathogeneses.
More than 20 recognized experts deliver the most relevant
information for the practitioner, student, or individual preparing for
the American College of Veterinary Pathologists’ board examination.
