Breeding Is A Bitch
Reference book on dog breeding
authored by Dr. Kurt De Cramer
This hardcover, 310 page, full color book is aptly titled but it is also an easy-read reference work on dog breeding.
Unlike most books of this size, the insight and sometimes humorous approach is appreciated by long-time breeders and engrossing for novice breeders. Just like the cover's image which marries humor and science.
Make no mistake, this book takes dog breeding very seriously and is chock-full of rich scientific content.
Veterinarians will broaden their knowledge on dog breeding and be able to better meet the expectations of their dog breeding clients.
There is an impressive collection of images which graphically illustrate what might otherwise be hard to grasp topics.
The book is non-breed specific and yet applicable to all breeds. I assure you that this book will be of value to dog breeders, and best of all, it is written by Dr. Kurt De Cramera, a reproductive specialist, with hands on experience.
It also covers nutrition and health, with emphasis on factors that affect breeding soundness of the stud and bitch. It covers genital diseases, pregnancy, lactation, whelping (caesarean and natural) artificial insemination, fertility problems, neonatal disease and puppy survival in addition to basic and advanced canine genetics.
This book will not disappoint even the well-read avid dog breeder. It is truly in a league of its own and will leave the reader with a feel good experience about dog breeding. Order your "must-have on the shelf" Breeding Is A Bitch in Paperback or Hardcover from Amazon.
