Canine Reproduction & Whelping by Myra Savant-Harr
Reviewer: Tonya Williamson
I credit this book to saving the life of my girl and her puppies.
My girl was not going in to seconder whelp. Her temp had dropped a full two degrees and I still did not have puppies. I called my vet and they told me I was over reacting that her due date was not for two days , to just wait. Well I did not wait I called around until I found a vet who would listen to me and get my girl in. We had to do a c-section and lost one puppy, but where able to save the other three and my girl . The vet who finally seen us said Raven would never had whelped the puppies on her own and the puppies where already detached and would not have made it to the due date. I would not know what I would have done with out this book.

Reviewer: Pamela Hoffman
This book is so full of information, that even long time breeders will probably find out something new! It is a must have if you have ever had trouble getting a bitch pregnant. Clearly explains pre breeding testing, and reasons for it, in easy to understand language. If you are just starting out I would highly recommend learning the problems and fixes this book can offer. Mrs Harris is an informative and easy to understand writer.
