This is a technical-scientific manual describing the main algorithms used for differential diagnosis in the field of haematology and biochemistry in the small animal clinic. The objective of this book is to optimize the work of clinical veterinarians by providing them with the necessary tools to guide and facilitate the diagnosis of the main haematology- and biochemistry-related diseases of small animals and to establish aetiology based on specific clinical signs. The authors, experts in the field of small animal haematology and biochemistry, include additional resources (tables, images, etc.) that make this manual an essential reference for veterinarians working with cats and dogs.

He is a member of the Veterinary Internal Medicine research group (PAIDI CTS-179) at the Universidad de Córdoba and the Calcium Metabolism and Vascular Calcification research group at the Maimonides Institute for Biomedical Research, Córdoba (IMIBIC). He is a member of the Spanish Society of Veterinary Internal Medicine (SEMIV) and the European Society of Veterinary Oncology (ESVONC), and is a founding member of the Veterinary Oncology Group of AVEPA (GEVONC).

He has worked as a visiting veterinarian in several prestigious veterinary hospitals in the UK (University of Bristol and the Queen Mother Hospital of the Royal Veterinary College, London), Germany (Veterinary Hospital of the University of Hannover and Veterinary Hospital of the University of Berlin), USA (Veterinary Hospital of Ohio State University) and South America (Institute of Feline Medicine, Santiago de Chile).

He has authored over 60 scientific publications in international journals in the fields of veterinary science, endocrinology, metabolism, urology and nephrology, and has spoken at over 100 national and international congresses and events.

He has received numerous awards for his research in the fields of nephrology and mineral metabolism, including awards presented by the Spanish Nephrology Society in 2009 and 2013.

He works exclusively in small animal practice with a special focus on oncology,
