Reproduction and poutine: the perfect mix?

You might wonder what kind of connexion there is between reproduction and poutine, especially when this is mentioned by a veterinarian specialized in small animal reproduction!

Feline genetics: what color can tell…

PRO CE events: a focus on parasites in Guelph.

Internal parasites… We sometimes tend to forget that, when breeding dogs, we do breed them as well! Indeed, forget about the idea of parasite-free dogs: inside your kennel, parasites are almost everywhere. That’s why we do believe that it is important for breeders to learn about them. Again, knowing your enemies is the best…

EBC forums: your experience is valuable for our PRO community!



Something I learned after 10 years working with feline and canine breeders: it will NEVER be easy, breeders will ALWAYS experience difficult situations “normal people will” never deal with… What I also learn from it: experience is key. The more difficult situations you experience, the stronger you will be. Because you will learn from it…

There is another way to get prepared to face these…
