This paper aimed to evaluate cat seminal plasma protein profile (with SDS-page) and determine differences in seminal plasma composition from ejaculates obtained using urethral catheterization after pharmacological induction (UrCaPI) and electroejaculation (EE). In addition, this study evaluates whether the recovery method affected seminal plasma protein and zinc concentrations. A single ejaculation was collected from 17 mixed-breed cats by EE (5/21) or UrCaPI (12/21), while 4/21 cats underwent… CONTINUE READING
