Abstract:

Various methods of sterilization in dogs such as relocation, deterrence, surgical interventions etc. are used to control stray dog population. Chemical sterilization is gaining popularity nowadays over other methods because of its economics, easy to perform and least complications. Thus, the present study was designed to explore the contraceptive effect of intra-testicular injection of zinc gluconate neutralized with arginine and chlorhexidine gluconate in twenty-four sexually mature male mongrel dogs by measuring the difference in blood testosterone level in male dogs. Three experimental groups (each group having six dogs) viz Group I, Group II and Group III were treated zinc gluconate neutralized with arginine, 5% chlorhexidine gluconate and 4% chlorhexidine gluconate, respectively and group IV having six dogs were kept as control. Blood testosterone level via ELISA were measured at day 0, 7, 15 and 30.  Blood testosterone level of all experimental groups was not significantly changed.
