Breed Predispositions to Disease in Dogs and Cats

This is an interesting reference book for people who see dogs or cats from a lot of different breeds. If you just want to know about a particular breed, you are better off getting it from the library, rather than buying it. It covers medical problems for most dog breeds, though not all breeds are covered. You will need to supplement this book with online research if you plan to become a breeder specialising in one or two breeds, because books like this can become dated very quickly. There is less on cats than dogs, partly because there are fewer cat breeds, and, as with dog breeds, not all cat breeds are listed. How useful this book is, then depends on what you want it for, and it does need to be supplemented by other sources.
