A 3-year old pug bitch was presented to the Referral Veterinary Polyclinic, I.V.R.I., Bareilly, with history of anestrus since last one year despite having normal body condition and appetite. Vaginal examination revealed normal genitalia without any abnormalities. For induction of estrus, bitch was treated Key words:
with cabergoline orally till the bitch shows proestral bleeding. After 10 days of treatment, bitch showed proestrous bleeding and on 12th days of proestrus, the vaginal cytology revealed presence of more than 90% of cornified cells and advised for breeding the bitch on alternative days until bitch rejects the male. After 45 days of mating the bitch was again presented to clinics for pregnancy diagnosis. Ultrasonographic examination revealed, 45 day old pregnancy. Cabergoline can be used as master drug to induce fertile estrus in any breed of *Corresponding Author

Prolactin appears to play a role in canine interoestrus interval, possibly by affecting gonadotrophin secretion Domestic bitches are non-seasonally monoestrus and/or ovarian responsiveness to gonadotrophins. animals. As a result of this unique reproductive Suppression of prolactin secretion by administration of physiology, bitches spontaneously ovulate only once or dopamine agonists (DA) shortened the duration of twice per year and ovulation can occur at any time of the anoestrus (Van Haaften et al., 1989) or induced oestrus in year. Reliable fertile estrus induction (EI) protocols have cases of prolonged anoestrus (Jochle et al., 1987; Arbeiter been difficult to devise in the bitch because of the et al., 1988 and Kutzler, 2007). The precise mechanism by insufficient understanding of the hormonal events which DA shortens anestrus is not yet known. Whether necessary for folliculogenesis in this species the action causes a decrease in PRL concentration by their (Concannon, 1993). The natural cause of the dopaminergic effect or by a direct dopaminergic action on termination of the long obligatory anestrus and onset either the gonadotrophic axis or on ovarian gonadotrophin of a new cycle is not clearly understood in the bitch. receptors remains to be determined. Some studies have Neither the canine ovary, nor pituitary, is quiescent shown that bromocriptine increases FSH concentration during anestrus; either luteinizing hormone (LH) or that results in enhancement of follicle development. The follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) has been reported role of the dopaminergic paths in the control of as “the main hormone” for initiation of folliculogenesis in gonadotrophin secretion is still unknown in the bitch. the dog (Kooistra et al., 1998). Estrus induction is also It has also been postulated that DA have a direct effect on useful for breeders and owners of pure-bred bitches with the ovaries (Jeffcoate, 1993). It is possible that normally long interestrous intervals often request to shorten interestrous intervals, so the number of litters per cabergoline might mature gonadotropin ovarian year can be increased. Perusal of literature revealed the receptors by its DA action (Harvey et al., 1997). In this use of a variety of exogenous hormones and their report, induction of fertile estrus with cabergoline without combinations viz., GnRH, FSH/LH, eCG/hCG and side effect in pug breed of dog is presented. oestrogens for induction of oestrus in bitches with varying results (Vanderlip et al., 1987, Shille et al., 1984 and History and clinical diagnosis

Administration protocols of most A 3-year old bitch (pug) with second parity was of these drugs involved daily to weekly injections and the presented to the Referral Veterinary Polyclinic, I.V.R.I., Izatnagar, Bareilly, with history of infertile mating in Inter J Vet Sci, 2014, 3(1): 1-3.
previous year, since then the bitch didn’t exhibit estrus symptoms despite of having normal body condition and appetite. Abdominal palpation and vaginal examination revealed apparently normal uterus external genitalia respectively. To rule out uterine pathology ultrasonography was performed which shown hypoechoic regions indicating small quantity of fluid in uterus. Furthermore, vaginal aspirate was taken for exfoliative vaginal cytology. In cytological finding, parabasal and intermediate cells with few neutrophils noticed (Figure 1). On integrating all the above findings it was confirmed that the bitch was in anestrus without any abnormalities.

To induce estrus, the bitch was treated with cabergoline (Prolactin inhibitor) at dose rate of 5 µg/kg body weight orally till the bitch showed proestrus bleeding. However, within 10 day of treatment bitch exhibited proestrus bleeding and treatment was discontinued thereafter. Importantly, pet was apparently normal during the course of treatment without side effects. Exfoliative vaginal cytology was performed as per standard procedure with Giemsa’s stain from 4th day of proestrus to determine the optimum breeding time (Figure 2:a,b). The cytology was repeated at 2 days interval till 90% of exfoliated cells get cornified. On 12th day of proestus vaginal cytology examination revealed presence of more than 90% of superficial cornified cells (Figure 3:a,b) indicating optimum breeding time. Owner was advised to breed the bitch on same day and to repeat mating on alternative days until bitch rejects the male (three successful mating done). After one and half month, pug was presented to clinics for confirmation of pregnancy. Visual examination revealed edematous teats and distended abdomen (Figure 4) and abdominal palpation revealed presence fetus and fetal swelling. For confirmation, ultrasonography (B-mode) performed and revealed presence of fetal skeleton with fetal movement and fetal heart beat. To assess the gestational age, fetal head diameter was measured (Figure 5) and age of fetus found to be 45 days. After completion full term, pug delivered six healthy pups without Fig. 3(a,b): Exfoliative cytology after 12th day of proestral
