The lady that wrote this is an RN that has helped countless women deliver babies. She has since become a dog breeder and has now helped save lots of puppies. She not only tells you what equipment you need but will actually sell it to you herself for what I think is a pretty fair price. She even gives you her e-mail address so you can send her questions through her e-mail. This book comes with a DVD that brings to life what she teaches you how to do in the book. All in all this is the only book that has ever made me feel like I will know what to do when I have a crisis with newborn puppies. In the book this lady says you can reduce your mortality rate by 20%! That's a lot! She says the average amount of puppies that die in infancy is 30% and that you can get it down to 10%. This book is so inexpensive that I think you can't afford to NOT buy it.

If you breed dogs or are thinking of breeding your dog you need to know all of the emergencies that can occur in the middle of the night when no one or no Vet is available....this book will walk you through those problems...it is no nonsense from a gal (an Intensive care RN)that has been there and done that...it also has an informative...step by step... DVD to illustrate how to tube feed a pup and how to give sub Q fluids.

If it saves the life of even one pup...it was more than worth the price of the book.

We use it at our Hospital and recommend it.

This is the best text I have read in 30 years of dog breeding. Informative and written for the lay-man. The accompanying DVD was frosting on the cake. I would recommend this book for all dog breeders, regardless of experience.

This is so jampacked with helpful info and handy hints. Her nursing knowledge is obvious with her laid back approach to things that would generally make even the most experienced breeders nervous. The DVD that accompanies this book is invaluable also. The footage of tube feeding, and rehydrating puppies is second to none. She writes confidently and humerously, and explains quite tricky procedures quite simply. This book will help every breeder. The pictures, being photo's are also extremely helpful.

If there is any one book that any breeder, whether it is an occasional family pet or professional breeder, this would be the one to have. It goes into details and is easily understood. It contains information that may save a puppies life. I have had my book for sometime and recently ordered one for my grandson. He lost an entire litter which I believe could have been saved if he had read this book.

I love this and all of Myra Savant Harris' books. I never whelp without them! And have them on hand for review and quick look up even once labor is underway. I like to tab with post-its and highlite parts I feel are important for what I might experience or can't remember well when I'm stressed in the midst. This book greatly increases your chances of saving a newborn puppy in distress. (There is no greater heartbreak than a lost pup! It's heartwrenching.) This book teaches so much. For example, it tells about how and why a pup rejected by its mother is not as good as dead and/or not otherwise healthy! Far from it! It is very matter of fact, practical and step by step, covering a variety of scenarios. It also explains amongst many other things how to administer oxygen. Although I do not use oxygen (so far), I still found that section interesting and education for a time when I might go that route. Regardless, there is plenty of other content to help you survive the gravest of pup-mergencies. Also, reading Myra's books greatly enhances confidence which makes the owner and the mama more relaxed throughout. This book helps you feel ready for just about anything. It is not meant to be veterinary advice or replace veterinary care, but rather helps you know what you can handle on your own, avoiding needless vet trip, and helps save pups when it is impossible to get to a vet on time. I could go on and on. I swear by Myra's books. P.S. For the commenter who said there's did not come with a dvd, I would suggest contact Myra Savant Harris (she's on Facebook) and seeing what can be done. Also Myra has her own website and you can order through that instead of Amazon, and then if you're not satisfied you can deal directly with her. http://www.myrasavantharris.com/

When my daughter was called out of town just before the new litter of puppies was to be born, I went into a panic because she had taken charge of whelping our first litter of maltipoo puppies. She was the one who had done extensive research online and had read the pertinent sections in the veterinary handbooks in our home library. I had played the role of ignorant bystander, admiring and cuddling each new puppy as it was delivered - never dreaming I might some day be called upon to handle the whole procedure on my own.

NOW, faced with just that eventuality, I started madly doing research all over the net and in our various handbooks. However, I was so panicky and there was so much information out there to absorb that I was more confused than anything else. I was even finding contradictory advice in my searches and didn't know how to determine whose advice would be best to follow. When it became obvious that birth was imminent (in the next few hours), I REALLY got scared and began a frantic search for a kindle book that would be short and authoritative enough to give me just the pertinent, direct informed advice I needed in a clear, well-organized manner that could be absorbed in the limited time I had left before whelping would begin. I cannot thank Myra Savant-harris for providing just what I needed in the nick of time! As a trained professional with a knack for putting the most necessary and pertinent information out in a clear, readable style that would inform as well as soothe a nervous ninny like me, she took me step by step through an understanding of the whole process that was absolutely invaluable.

It was as if someone stepped in and took my hand and guided me through what had seemed like a terribly confusing process.
