Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book has a very specific purpose, namely the provision of a list of diseases recognised within pure breeds with increased frequency or with a proven genetic component, and will be of great value to general practitioners and specialists as a rapidly accessible source of this information." (Journal of Small Animal Practice, 1 October 2011)

"It would be most useful for students, geneticists, shelter workers, vet nurses, pet shop staff or anyone working with or interested in cats and dogs. For veterinarians, it would make a good addition to the general clinic library for a readily accessible quick reference and when advising clients of possible problems with their chosen breed." (Australian Veterinary Journal, 5 May 2011)

"This book's primary aim is to provide vets with an easily accessible and comprehensive list of all of the canine and feline diseases for which there is a proven or suspected breed predisposition. That is a very big ambition for a small book and in some ways it succeeds in this aim and should be applauded for that." (Cat Care, December 2010)

From the Back Cover

"Provides an easily accessed source of diagnostic possibilities that is particularly helpful when dealing with an unusual collection of clinical signs or with unfamiliar breeds. The authors’ experiences in busy first opinion and referral practice have no doubt provided the incentive to organise the book appropriately for those who will have most wish to consult it. It is to be hoped that this book, by highlighting breed associated disorders, can provide an impetus towards more vociferous veterinary leadership in this important area of companion animal welfare."
Nick Jeffery, Professor of Veterinary Clinical Studies, University of Cambridge

This book will save you hours of searching through scattered literature.  A unique resource, it brings together all the disparate information on breed-related diseases in one quick-reference volume. Breed-by-breed, with one section for dogs and one for cats, both inherited and other prevalent disorders are listed. The final section describes each of the disorders covered in more detail.  All information is drawn from high quality sources, including research journals and veterinary reference texts, with extensive references provided.

This invaluable reference helps veterinary professionals to advise clients on their choice of breed and what problems to look out for. It is also ideal for dog and cat owners and breeders, as well as being useful for geneticists and animal scientists.

New to this edition:

  • Improved and expanded referencing to the primary literature, to aid further research
  • Easier navigation helps you to find the information you need quickly
  • Contains an extended directory of genetic test providers

Format: Paperback
The second updated edition of Alex Gough and Alison Thomas' BREED PREDISPOSITIONS TO DISEASE IN DOGS AND CATS provides an invaluable and unique reference gathering under one cover all the different details on breed-specific diseases. Breed-by-breed, with one section for dogs and one for cats, describes inherited and prevalent disorders and provides details gleaned from veterinary references and research journals alike. Ne to this edition is expanded referencing to primary sources, an easier format, and an extended directory of genetic test providers. Highly recommended!

This is a great reference for veterinarians (like myself). We are planning on incorporating a lot of these diseases into our software (avimark) as a genetic "problem" list.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has a section that has short descriptions for diseases included in the book, and a section that is listed by breed (cats & dogs) with the diseases each breed is predisposed to. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a section broken down by disease listing the animals predisposed to those diseases.
