Preface to the Second Edition
Laboratory techniques are increasingly used by veterinarians for the diagnosis of animal diseases. The laboratory may provide the diagnosis when history, symptoms, or gross lesions fail to do so. On the other hand, laboratory procedure should never be used as a substitute for keen clinical inquiry and observation. To increase the usefulness of this book, numerous additions I and revisions have been made. The  photomicrographs have been increased from 247 to 271, including the replacement of four. The 190 illustrations in Sec tion 1 have been regrouped for easier reference. A description of the fluke egg technique has been added. Eighteen illustrations of helminth ova from man are included so that veterinarians may conduct fecal examinations as a service to physicians. The section on mites has been revised and four new figures added. The reference lists have been brought up to date. It is hoped, as time and material permit, more illustrations and more sections will be added to the existing pre.sentation
