Influence of inbreeding on litter size and the proportion of stillborn puppies in dachshunds

Influence of inbreeding on litter size and the proportion of stillborn puppies in dachshunds

Berliner und Munchener Tierarztliche Wochenschrift 118(3-4): 134-139

The factors influencing the litter size of puppies and the number and the proportion of stillborn puppies per litter were analysed in normal sized German Dachshunds. Data was obtained from 42 855 litters registered between 1987 and 2002 in the German Dachshund kennel club. The mean litter size was 5.22+or-2.01 puppies. The proportion of puppies born dead per litter was 6.6%.
