For Dr. M. L. Parihar, the sleight of hand is not exemplary only in the field of treating dogs but also in terms of writing interesting books. And in continuation to his pursuits of writing books related to the field of dogs, his latest presentation and statistically the tenth one, is titled ‘Secrets of Successful Dog Breeding’. The title of the book should not let somebody feel that this book is meant only for professional dog breeders, since the content is going to be of as much interest to any veterinarian interested in pet practice, as to a professional dog breeder.
Almost all the aspects of dog breeding have been covered with good explanation. Most importantly, the sub-heading of subjects in each chapter makes the reading more interesting.
‘The Management of Success of Mating’ is one of the best written chapters in which Dr. Parihar has not only discussed the various physiological concepts related to estrus but, useful suggestions for ensuring successful mating have been put forth with a great deal of practical experience and insights. The illustrations, which have been ably supported with the text, makes the content more elucidating.
As the concept of ultrasonography is also The Secrets of Successful Dog Breeding book review catching up in canine practice, so, the chapter dealing with this matter will be quite educative to the relevant readers. In addition to the oft thought usage of ultrasonography i.e. pregnancy diagnosis, various other applications of ultrasonography
i.e. diagnosis of various tumours, cysts, usage in uterine pathological conditions like pyometra, dead foetus in uterus, and pseudo pregnancy in bitches have been described.
The chapter dealing with drug therapy in pregnancy and lactation is also a well-thought addition in this book, because unborn and new born animals are quite susceptible to a wide variety of adverse effects with the usage of drugs in the given period.
Overall, it is a very useful book for getting a specialized knowledge in dog breeding. Addition of some coloured illustrations inside the book would have been icing on the otherwise excellent book. Maybe, the author did not want to increase the cost of the book by splurging on aesthetics.
A book worth reading and keeping for reference.
