IDEXX is justifiably proud of the caliber of our workforce and the contributions they make every day to the health and well-being of animals worldwide. When that contribution is the publication of a new reference text for the veterinary industry, it’s worth giving the authors a shout out! In 2017, IDEXXers published not one, but two important new atlases:
Rick Cowell, DVM, MS, MRCVS, DACVP
Amy Valenciano, DVM, MS, DACVP
Atlas of Canine and Feline Urinalysis
IDEXX clinical pathologists Rick Cowell (Virtual – South Region) and Amy Valenciano (Dallas, Texas) collaborated with IDEXX Medical Affairs Fellow Dennis DeNicola (Westbrook, Maine) and three others pathology KOLs on the Atlas of Canine and Feline Urinalyis.
According to Doody’s Review Service for the health sciences, “The book covers all aspects of urinalysis including appropriate collection, storage, preparation of urine for laboratory analysis, and chemical and microscopic evaluation. It presents practical techniques for urine collection, has many images of sediment structures, and helpful tables that summarize information … This book mirrors those available in human medicine. It is thorough and the images are excellent…”
|Clinical Atlas of Small Animal Cytology |
|Andrew Burton, BVSc, DACVP, clinical pathologist in the North Grafton, Massachusetts, lab just published the Clinical Atlas of Small Animal Cytology.
From the back cover:
Clinical Atlas of Small Animal Cytology is designed to offer a user-friendly, clinically oriented cytology resource, with the highest quality images and thorough yet succinct clinical summaries of common diseases encountered in small animal practice. Images have been carefully selected and presented to mimic the appearance of samples under the microscope, for ease of comparison and identification. The images are accompanied by full cytologic descriptions to guide the reader through the diagnostic process and highlight important features, to aid in accurately and confidently diagnosing disease.
