"The third edition of Canine Reproduction: The Breeder's Guide is a wonderful tool for novices as well as experienced breeders who wish to delve into the world of canine reproduction. It can also easily serve as a powerful tool for veterinarians with an interest in reproductive medicine and as such should be included as an excellent quick reference. The author is a veterinarian with over 40 years of experience with dogs who does an excellent job of discussing all aspects of canine reproduction in a straightforward and simplified manner using language and terms that are appropriate for breeders or laypersons while also providing medical information and scientific data in a practical and engaging format for veterinarians...Perhaps most endearing for readers is the author's ability to provide the material with both humility and humor. This book is certain to be a valuable reference for both breeders and veterinarians and should be part of their libraries, where it will be used time and again." Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association)

About the Author:

Dr. Holst's interest in dogs as a hobby, and dogs as a career in research, eventually led her into veterinary school. It seemed to be a natural extension of both interests. She graduated from Colorado State University in 1977 and has been in small animal practice since that time. Reproductive problems and breeding management have continued to be her specialty. Her first gainful employment after college was the Collaborative Radiological Laboratory, Colorado State University. The lab was a major research center studying the long-term effects of low-level irradiation on Beagles. Part one of the project was being undertaken at the time: to study prenatal development in dogs so that the organism being irradiated could be better understood. The director of the lab, Dr. Robert Phmeister, was especially interested in the reproductive research, and under his leadership, Phyllis became more involved in research, growing gradually away from the histopathology lab. Her master's thesis as a result of that research was a study of the development of the canine embryo from conception to implantation -- work that had not been done in a complete way before. The thesis, along with several other studies, was published and is now a permanent part of the literature. The time of ovulation and its relation to LH levels and to vaginal cytology were important parts of the research being done at that time. Recognizing the onset of diestrus and its relationship to other important reproductive processes is probably the single most important knowledge to have come from research. Holst's Sarabande Shelties provided the opportunity to become involved in showing and breeding dogs, which has continued to be a most enjoyable hobby. The sixth generation of Sarabande Shelties now lives happily with the author. Two have completed championships, several others are pointed, and many have finished obedience titles. Phyllis participated as a lecturer at the Colorado State University short course for breeders and veterinarians on canine reproduction during the two years it was presented. Most recently, she contributed a chapter on vaginal cytology to the second edition of Current Therapy in Theriogenology (W.B. Saunders Co.).
