Abstract:

Stray dog bite is one of the public health problem in the world and there is a great need of envisaging irreversible contraceptive methods in dogs. Therefore, the present study was conducted to evaluate the effects of intra epididymal zinc arginine administration in pre-pubertal dogs. Eighteen pre-pubertal stray community dogs weighing 6-8 kg were administered with zinc arginine solution@ 0.2 ml per each cauda epididymis per-cutaneously using 26 gauge, ½ inch needle. On day 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 and 90 post injection two separate animals were subjected to surgical removal of testis and epididymis for histopathological studies. Similarly, one untreated control was operated on day 10 and second on day 90 of experiment. From the present study it is concluded that single intra-epididymal injection of zinc arginine causes complete necrosis of the cauda epididymal tubules and irreversible loss of fertility in dogs.
