Abstract

Four cats showing the estrous signs and behaviour after ovariohysterectomy were examined for the peripheral levels of estradiol-17β and progesterone by RIA during and after estrus. The changes of both steroid levels in all the cases examined were similar to those in normal female cats. In one case treated with human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) and chlormadinone acetate (CMA), the estrous behaviour was effectively controlled.
