This three-part course will help veterinary professionals gain the basic knowledge they need to understand and interpret small-animal hematology results, including using an automated hematology analyzer and performing a confirmatory blood film. This first module includes an introduction to hematology and is focused on the first component of the hemogram: the red blood cell. It also includes basic terminology, the components of the complete blood count (CBC) and common hematologic abnormalities. The second module will focus on white blood cells and the third on platelets and the blood film. (2 CE credits)
