Edinburgh's Telford College, UK. Manual on dogs and cats with reproductive disorders. For students and clinicians. Color and halftone illustrations. Softcover.
Problems with breeding of dogs and cats and the complications of whelping and kittening are commonly dealt with by veterinary surgeons in practice. Success depends on a full appreciation of the normal events involved in reproduction, and the problems that may arise.
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.
