New revised 3rd edition - This classic reference, which has become the "bible" for dog breeders, has been revised and updated to include the latest scientific information. Canine Reproduction covers everything from planning a mating and the basics of reproduction to managing the estrous cycle, caring for the pregnant bitch, whelping and care of newborns, and handling reproductive problems. After more than three decades of experience including laboratory work, breeding, exhibition, and her Master's degree in prenatal development, Holst writes from a depth of experience that is uncommon in this field.
What reviewers are saying...
"The third edition of Canine Reproduction: The Breeder's Guide is a wonderful tool for novices as well as experienced breeders who wish to delve into the world of canine reproduction. It can also easily serve as a powerful tool for veterinarians with an interest in reproductive medicine and as such should be included as an excellent quick reference. The author is a veterinarian with over 40 years of experience with dogs who does an excellent job of discussing all aspects of canine reproduction in a straightforward and simplified manner using language and terms that are appropriate for breeders or laypersons while also providing medical information and scientific data in a practical and engaging format for veterinarians...Perhaps most endearing for readers is the author's ability to provide the material with both humility and humor. This book is certain to be a valuable reference for both breeders and veterinarians and should be part of their libraries, where it will be used time and again."
