Introduction to Veterinary Pathology, Third Edition, is constructed for the beginning student in veterinary pathology, to introduce new scientific information on mechanisms of general tissue injury into the language of medicine. The basic concepts of pathology are integrated into clinical medicine. Chapters on cellular degeneration and necrosis, inflammation, thrombosis, hemodynamic disorders, and neoplasia have been reconstructed to include the latest in new scientific information and color illustrations of gross pathology. The revised 3rd edition also includes new chapters on:- Infectious Diseases - Nutritional and Metabolic Diseases - Ecosystems and Environmental Pathology - Forensic Pathology and Bioterrorism The new text has remained true to elements favored in a review of the 2nd edition: "chapters cover the time-honoured topics of basic pathology - the information is impressively current and compact. Important points are illustrated with memorable examples of natural disease from the full range of domesticated species and our debt to laboratory animals is also recognized. The text is embellished with pathological vignettes such as an 1819 account of tetanus and the weaponry potential of anthrax, and the many photographs are eye-catching and often paired in order to contrast normal with abnormal or gross with microscopic" - Dr. Malcolm France, course coordinator for Veterinary Pathology, University of Sydney.
