Control of Canine Genetic Diseases
by George A. Padgett, DVM

The issue of genetic diseases in dogs is a matter of major concern for every dog breeder, every companion dog owner and every serious dog enthusiast at the present time. How to understand the mechanics of inheritance, how to deal with percentages, predictability of outcome and how to breed away from such scourges as canine hip dysplasia, progressive retinal atrophy and other debilitating conditions are all covered in this important new book by one of the scientific community's most respected authorities on the subject. The superlative text is augmented with charts, graphs, tables and all the data needed to help the dog breeder take a positive role in enhancing the genetic health of his or her own dogs and the health of entire breed populations. Many practical issues are included such as ethical dealings with buyers of puppies showing late onset conditions, test mating and much more. Destined to become the classic on this truly vital subject.

"This pioneering research on dog behavioral genetics is a timeless classic for all serious students of ethology and canine behavior."--Dr. Michael Fox, Senior Advisor to the President, The Humane Society of the United States

"Genetics and the Social Behavior of the Dog is essential reading for anyone involved in the breeding of dogs.

Canine Orthopedics
by Connie Jankowski (Contributor), Suzanna Lee, Robert L. Rooks

Whether your dog is the family pet, a canine athlete, or a working dog, orthopedics affects every aspect of that dog's daily life, including the ability to stand, lie down, site, as well as to move comfortably and efficiently. Damaged bones, along with soft tissue injury and strictures, can cause wear and tear on joints. This can lead to lameness, discomfort, pain, impaired function and irritability. Although we may not think of it or realize it, that sweet, loving companion can turn into an irritable grouch if even the simplest orthopedic problems exist. Canine Orthopedics identifies and discusses the diseases and maladies, genetic, environmental and traumatic, that affect the skeletal structure of dogs. These problems that determine the fitness, function, soundness and overall well-being of dogs. Canine Orthopedics directs particular emphasis to how owners can learn to evaluate problems; preventative measures including nutrition, accident prevention and selective breeding; treatment options (including the very latest and experimental programs from veterinary schools); and causes of lameness. Canine Orthopedics will give all dog owners enhanced insight to use for themselves and communicate more effectively with the veterinarian.
