A concise and accessible guide to the various conditions which affect the process of reproduction in dogs and bitches. The book considers all aspects of the physiology, anatomy and endocrinology of the male and female reproductive system, followed by a discussion of mating, pregnancy and parturition. Later chapters describe problems such as anatomical abnormalities, abnormal physiology and endocrinology, intersexuality, infertility, contraception and surgical procedures. Building on content first published in Allen's Fertility and Obstetrics in the Dog (Blackwell, 1998) this book is fully revised and updated, with substantial new material designed to give practical guidance to the professional breeder as well as the vet.

( Australian Veterinary Journal , 28 October 2013) "I believe that the author has made a major contribution to the veterinary literature with this book. It is a useful, one-of-a-kind clinical handbook that is well worth the price and should be on the shelf of any veterinarian, veterinary student, or breeder who is involved or interested in the reproductive management of dogs." ( Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association , 15 March 2013) "This is a valuable addition to any clinician's or student's library, as it is a very detailed, easy-to-read book covering the aspects of canine reproduction that a veterinary surgeon is likely to come across in day-to-day general practice." ( Veterinary Practice News , 1 September 2013) "Gary England is himself a veterinarian spe
