Abstract

In the majority of domestic species the interval between one ovulation and another is approximately 21 days. The cycles of the domestic bitch and queen differ from this general scheme. This chapter considers the hypothalamic-gonadal axis; the bitch and queen’s puberty, peak fertility, cyclicity and oestrous cycle.
