CYTOLOGY is a very useful tool for the practising veterinary surgeon. Samples can be collected and examined quickly and easily, with no requirement for lengthy processing. Thus, results can be obtained in minutes and, in the light of the cytological findings, an appropriate treatment plan formulated. This article describes some simple sampling techniques for evaluation of superficial masses, lymph nodes and internal organs. The general principles of cytological interpretation, and the collection and handling of pleural and peritoneal effusions in the dog and cat, will be discussed in future issues.
