Plasma luteinizing hormone (LH) and testosterone (T) levels in three normal male Beagles increased markedly, the LH levels peaking at 30 or 45 min and the T levels at 45 or 60 min respectively, after a subcutaneous injection of 1 microgram kg-1 gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist (GnRH-A). Two Collies and a Great dane diagnosed as oligozoospermic and two Shetland sheep dogs diagnosed as azoospermic by evaluation of semen quality were treated with 1 microgram kg-1 GnRH-A after blood… CONTINUE READING
