PATHOLOGY AND PARASITOLOGY FOR VETERINARY TECHNICIANS, 2E is a great introduction for veterinary technicians who need pertinent information about pathology and parasitology, laying the groundwork for further study and practice. Clear-cut descriptions, case studies and methodologies prepare technicians for what they will experience in the practical setting. Readers will gain a thorough understanding of technical procedures, parasite life cycles, zoonotic potential, and diagnosis and treatment. Practical case studies and evaluation questions enable application of concepts. Extensive color images on the accompanying CD-ROM Image Library provide a detailed look at parasites and various pathologies. Additionally, this combined pathology and parasitology text will become an invaluable reference in a future work setting.
