If you breed dogs for any reason, you must own this book. Genetic diseases are among the most serious hazards on the landscape of modern dog breeding and one of the most vexing challenges facing today's dog breeders. Is it appropriate to open the gene pool to unwanted conditions in the pursuit of physical perfection, or must breeding to the Standard take a back seat to producing healthy animals?
In Control of Canine Genetic Diseases, renowned authority George A. Padgett, DVM, provides an expert road map to help dog breeders everywhere avoid the pitfalls they are almost destined to encounter. For anyone whose goal is to produce healthy, functional and beautiful dogs, this is the book they need. Dr. Padgett provides clear explanations of modes of inheritance, how to conduct and analyze test matings and how to lower the chances of producing affected animals. Numerous tables, diagrams and graphs further enhance the text to facilitate the breeder's understanding.

Do not be put off by a book that looks as if it will be difficult to understand. Only a *very basic* knowledge of genetics is needed to get through this book as it is not packed with terminology, and what it does use it explains simply and quickly.
I believe this book is a must-read for all dog breeders and those clubs associated with dog breeders - whether you are a serious registered breeder, breeding two or three litters a year, or believe you are breeding "just one litter" from your favourite pet dog. Canine genetic diseases are a potentially heartbreaking issue you should be aware of whether you are breeding just one litter or several!
