The Collie - A Veterinary Reference for the Professional Breeder is a
beautifully illustrated classic. It is the first book on the
Collie breed to provide detailed information about Collie
genetics, prevention of inherited disorders, detailed coat color
inheritance, health issues, reproductive medicine, and neonatal care. It is also the
first book to include a complete Coat Color Inheritance
Chart illustrating more than 50 possible color breeding
combinations and the resultant offspring. The Collie
- A Veterinary Reference for the Professional Breeder
is a labor of love, written to answer most questions asked
by Collie breeders and veterinarians, in an effort to help
breeders produce the best Collies they possibly can.
book is divided into three parts:
I Genetics and Coat Color Inheritance
of usual and uncommon color variations, 30 pages of coat
II Selected Diseases and Disorders
and congenital diseases
chapters on eye problems
of "grey collie syndrome"
of specific diseases and how to eliminate them
and statistical probabilities
III The Breeding Colony and Reproduction

diseases of the adult dog and puppy
The Collie - A Veterinary Reference for the Professional
Breeder was reviewed by Board Certified Veterinary
Specialists and contains 296 pages and almost 200 scientific
references for additional reading. There are more than 60
pages of color photos and color illustrations, plus pen
and ink drawings and a complete glossary.
Durable hard cover with high quality paper, this book is
now a very rare and valuable collector's item.

Collie Compendium, anticipated release in 2005!
