The international contributors of this book describe the normal physiological basis of fertility and reproduction, and the approach to problems seen in practice. Male and female infertility in the dog and cat are fully discussed, along with mating and the techniques of artificial insemination in both species. Sections on pregnancy, parturition and dystocia are followed by a detailed guide to the all-important care of the neonate, with considerations of congential problems and the role of infectious diseases and vaccination in young puppies and kittens. Comprehensive sections on drug therapy and surgery for reproductive problems in the dog and cat are included. This is a very practical book, fully illustrated and with a wealth of information to guide the reader through the approach to and treatment of reproductive disorders of small animals. It is a valuable and convenient source of reference for veterinary surgeons, veterinary students, veterinary nurses and all those involved in dealing with problems associated with the breeding of dogs and cats.

Reproduction In The Dog A Tropical Approach

Author: Jovi Otite
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
ISBN: 9781503560123
Release Date: 2015-10-30
Genre: Pets

Dog breeding has gained tremendous awareness over the last decade. In some countries it is a source of employment for many and a means of poverty alleviation. The canine industry is growing tremendously and dogs are transported across borders all year round. As a result of this fast growing industry, the treatment given to dogs keeps improving as man’s awareness increases. However, majority of the literature available to dog breeders and enthusiasts are of temperate origin and as a result, information available to the tropical breeder is limited. Raising dogs in the tropics is different from the temperate regions. The outcome of inadequate information affects the management of our canine friends. This affects the reproductive potential of dogs raised in the tropics. The environment which we give our dogs reflects on the dog’s ability to exhibit its full genetic makeup. Hence, dogs might appear sterile, obese, underweight, or malnourished depending on its environment. This book, Reproduction in the Dog: A Tropical Approach, addresses the problems associated with dog breeding in the tropics and gives authentic information to the breeder, veterinarian, animal scientist or dog enthusiast. It covers all the reader needs to know about breeding, reproduction, artificial insemination, semen collection, handling and storage, cloning, feed composition, housing, care of dogs and lots more.
