DescriptionCats are one of the most popular pets in the world and cat owners want advanced veterinary care. There is a growing interest in purebred cats which requires the highest quality reproductive care from the general veterinary practitioners.
In Feline Reproduction, all aspects of reproduction in the queen and the tom are presented by a global author team. Beginning with basic anatomy and normal reproduction, this book reviews practical knowledge about feline pregnancy, neonatal care, breeding soundness exams, and semen cryopreservation.
