Overall, this book is an excellent addition for the library of any equine clinician, pathologist, clinical pathologist, or veterinary student. The quality of the paper used is good, and the cover and binding is substantial, indicating that this book should age well and not deteriorate or disintegrate, as sometimes occurs with less well-constructed books. – Vet Clin Pathol. 2021;50:309.

“This well-organized, user-friendly book will appeal to a wide range of audiences including equine-focused veterinary students, interns, residents, and practitioners, as well as clinical pathologists seeking to expand their knowledge of equine-specific entities.” – JAVMA | SEP 15, 2021 | VOL 259 | NO. 6
