Efficacy of the GnRH analogue deslorelin for suppression of oestrous cycles in cats.
TLDR
It is confirmed that deslorelin can effectively suppress ovarian activity in domestic cats, but that the duration of suppression varies among individuals.
Induction of contraception in some African wild carnivores by downregulation of LH and FSH secretion using the GnRH analogue deslorelin.
TLDR
The GnRH analogue deslorelin, in long-acting biocompatible implants, was used as a contraceptive in 31 cheetahs, 21 African wild dogs, 10 lionesses and four leopards and no side-effects or behavioural changes were noted, indicating that des Lorelin is a safe drug to use for the contraception of the species described.
Control of reproduction and sex related behaviour in exotic wild carnivores with the GnRH analogue deslorelin: preliminary observations.
TLDR
Two wild dogs and one lioness came into oestrus 12 and 18 months after deslorelin administration, respectively, thus demonstrating that the anti-fertility effects of des Lorelin are reversible.
Advancing the time of ovulation in the mare with a short-term implant releasing the GnRH analogue deslorelin.
TLDR
A small, biocompatible and short-term implant releasing 1.5 mg or 2.25 mg of the GnRH analogue deslorelin was evaluated in 140 Hanoverian mares during the 1990 breeding season and resulted in ovulations in 65 of 70 mares within 48 h, while only 5 of 70 control mares ovulated within the same time period.
Review of contraception in ungulate species.
TLDR
Fertility control in hoofstock has been achieved through a number of different contraceptive methods predominantly surgical sterilization, mechanical contraception, synthetic steroid hormones, and immunocontraception, and successes and limitations are reviewed.
