Abstract:

Semen extenders are diluent added to semen to preserve its fertilizing ability and also act as buffers that protects the sperm cells from their own toxic byproducts, cold shock and osmotic shock during the chilling and as a source of nutrition. The study was undertaken to compare the effect of 3 different extenders viz., BTS, CDE and TRIS on preserved mongrel dog semen at chilled temperature upto 72 hours. A total of 21 ejaculates were utilized to study the effects of these 3 extenders on semen quality on the basis of hypo-osmotic sperm swelling test. The overall HOSST-reacted sperm was found to be significantly (P<0.01) higher in CDE and TRIS extenders than in BTS extender.
