"This practical guide covers all aspects of canine reproduction in depth, from learning the breeder's work to dealing with infertility. The eleven chapters take you into the world of dog breeding in a nicely illustrated journey while providing answers to many questions: Should I vaccinate my pregnant bitch? What drugs can be used? What is a normal delivery? How far should you go in treating sick neonates? Ready-made report sheets, a thorough list of medicines, clinical algorithms, and a detailed index are other useful features of this no-nonsense book."
-Vets Now: Book Review, October 2015

"This book provides a comprehensive description of clinical canine theriogenology from a practical and common-sense perspective. Clinical procedures are effectively detailed in step-by-step protocols. ... This book has many strengths including > 200 high-quality, colored photographs, which help readers appreciate the difference between normal and abnormal reproductive conditions. The 51 well-organized appendices provide concise information in the form of algorithms, lists, tables, forms, and questionnaires that are useful for veterinarians, technical staff, and clients. An enormous benefit is that these helpful appendices are available digitally and can be downloaded, edited, and customized to meet individual needs."
