Introduction to Veterinary Pathology
Abnormalities of cells and tissues, caused by injury, in nonhuman vertebrate animal species are explained in this textbook by renowned veterinary pathologist Norman F. Cheville. It provides a framework of basic principles of general pathology and adds to this new knowledge of molecular pathology in a clear, understandable manner for students.
This text contains instruction in the interaction of disease processes, as well as information about the ways basic pathologic processes interact during disease. There is emphasis on gross and light microscopic changes, mechanisms responsible for events in disease, and interspecies comparisons.
The book features clear, easily understood descriptions and explanations supplemented by over 100 tables, 50 line illustrations, and 143 photographs. Undergraduate and graduate students in veterinary medicine and biology (especially fish and zoology), and medical pathologists with interests in comparative medicine, will benefit from this book
