Necropsy: Procedures And Basic Diagnostic Methods For Practicing Veterinarians Pdf

By Albert C. Strafuss

Necropsy: Procedures and Basic Diagnostic Methods for Practicing Veterinarians PDF is written to aid veterinary practitioners and students in establishing diagnoses. Information scattered throughout the literature or lear!led by the author’s experience has been collated and presented in a logical sequence. A necropsy procedure for the dog with appropriate modifications for other domestic animals is described, thereby eliminating the necessity of learning a different procedure for each species. Emphasis is placed on gross pathologic diagnoses with simple and quick supportive laboratory techniques, which can be performed during necropsy (impressions or smears, Gram stains, etc.). A common mistake in practice is to omit laboratory procedures or to do difficult tests that are needed infrequently without first perfecting tests that are supportive, simply done, inexpensive, and more rewarding.
