A ground-breaking book in veterinary medicine, Veterinary Comparative Hematopathology is a heavily illustrated comprehensive reference on hematopoietic neoplasms in domestic and laboratory animals. The book enables veterinary pathologists and oncologists to provide more specificity in both diagnosis and therapy, and will serve as a seminal reference for future work in the field.The book offers a unique comparative approach based on the WHO classification of these tumors in humans. Known animal tumors are described and compared to their counterparts in humans. Those tumors now defined in humans but without a recognized animal counterpart are described in the human context, thus better facilitating future identification in animals. 571 p.
