At the American Pit Bull Registry we are concerned about your Pit Bulls health and have taken the time to develop this resource section to help you provide the best care possible for your canine family members. This section is not intended to supplant proper veterinary care. If you find you need a local veterinarian we encourage you to review our vet database where we have over 44,000 vets listed.
For those who do or are considering breeding we also provide our own written resource called "Breeding By The Book". This comprehensive resource will help you understand from day one the steps to go through to conduct a responsible breeding program and to help insure the healthiest outcome for your pups. Disease and improper breeding practices account for the highest degree of litter mortality. With this resource you will gain an understanding of how to breed to limit genetic and other health risks as well as steps to take to limit health issues after birth has taken place. Breeding can be a very risky and expensive proposition if your litter falls ill. A typical treatment program of a litter with Parvo or Distemper can easily run a breeder well over $1,000 in treatment for a survival rate of less than 50%. For less than the cost of a bag of puppy food you can protect the health of your pups and the reputation of your program. If you cannot afford the book then breeding is not in your best interest as it does involve both time and money in order to be successful. This book provides a detailed overview that is critical to any breeding establishment but is also a premium resource discussing a full array of marketing techniques sure to give its owner a competitive advantage in the sales market. For the breeder there is no better resource on the market to take them successfully from finding a mate, preparing for birth, insuring healthy outcomes, marketing their offspring and finding high quality long-term loving homes.

PAPRVO, DISTEMPER, HIP DYSPLASIA! Dreaded words no owner wants to hear. Too often we go to the vet and feel like they have not provided us with enough information on a condition our pets may have. Maybe they have explained it well but have not really discussed a comprehensive treatment plan to insure the best outcome. Maybe everything was discussed well but in the midst of a diagnosis it was impossible to absorb everything and now you need to assess your options, refresh your memory and make a decision on your next course of action. In our health topics section we will review various health-related topics to help insure not only the best treatment possible but also how to avoid negative health conditions in the first place.
