A Cause of Postpartum Fever, plus a Best Junior with an All-Breed Best

An elevated temperature is normal in a bitch that has just whelped a litter, but a sustained fever could be an indication of acute metritis. Editor Susan Chaney interviews an associate professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine to find out about the treatment options for this inflammation of the uterus, and learns why responsible breeders rarely encounter the condition.

DFR Blogger Kayla Bertagnolli introduces a 16-year-old handler from Kentucky whose list of achievements includes a pair of extraordinary wins earned on the same day. Chloe Tilford has spent only three years competing in AKC’s Junior Showmanship program, but she’s already demonstrated that she’s ready to compete with the pros. Meet the young lady, and discover what she accomplished at the Southern Indiana Kennel Club dog show.
