This colour atlas is designed as a reference for the morphologic facets of veterinary hematology of universal family animals. It covers various species, together with canine, cats, horses, farm animals, sheep, goats, pigs and llamas. The atlas is split into sections, the 1st covers blood, whereas the second one discusses bone marrow. concepts for the gathering and practise of blood and bone marrow spears and bone marrow middle biopsies are coated as well as the morphology of the tissues gathered. frequently, a number of examples of a mobile sort or irregular situation are proven to demonstrate the variance in morphology.

Metamyelocytes. Nuclei with slight indentations are still classified as myelocytes, but once the nuclear indentation extends more than 25% into the nucleus, the cell is called a metamyelocyte (Fig. 1ST). Nuclear condensation becomes readily apparent at this stage of maturation. Band Cells. Cells with thinner, rod-shaped nuclei with parallel sides are called bands (Fig. 15K). No area of the nucleus has a diameter less than two thirds the diameter of any other area of the nucleus. Band cell nuclei twist to conform to the space within the cytoplasm, and U-shaped or S-shaped nuclei (Fig.
These include intracellular protozoal parasites (Babesia species, Theileria species, and Cytauxzoon felis) , intracellular rickettsial organisms (Anaplasma species), and epicellular mycoplasma organisms (Haemobartonella species and Eperythrozoon species). The protozoal organisms each have a nucleus within their cytoplasm. The rickettsia and mycoplasma organisms are bacteria and, therefore, lack nuclei. These infectious agents generally cause mild to severe hemolytic anemia, depending on the pathogenicity of the organism and the susceptibility of the host.
Wright-Giemsa stain. FIGURE 11. See legend on opposite page. 30 CHAPTER 2 I ERYTHROCYTES 31 Spherocytes Spherical erythrocytes that result from cell swelling and/or loss of cell membrane are referred to as spherocytes. Spherocytes lack central pallor and have smaller diameters than normal on stained blood films (Fig. lIP). Spherical erythrocytes with slight indentations on one side may be called stomatospherocytes (Fig. llQ). Spherocytes occur most frequently in association with immune-mediated hemolytic anemia in dogs.
