Abstract:

The objective of this study was to characterize mongrel dog semen of Mizoram so as to have a definite specification to enable further use in different assisted reproductive technology and help in differentiating normal from abnormal samples. Colour, ejaculate volume, pH, progressive motility, sperm concentration, live sperm percent, intact acrosome and membrane integrity (hypo osmotic swelling test) were assessed. Characterization of these parameters was comparable with those reported from other mongrels and medium sized breeds. Milky white coloured semen was observed. Specific semen characteristics obtained (mean ± S.E.) were ejaculate volume 2.95 ± 0.41ml; pH 6.59 ± 0.76; Progressive motility93.30 ± 1.65%; sperm concentration 298.73 ± 35.46x106/ml; live sperm 90.84 ± 1.8%; intact acrosome 97.37 ± 0.77% and HOOST reacted sperm 93.27 ± 0.53%.
