Vet Med Nauki. 1987;24(5):102-10.
[Article in Bulgarian]


An experiment was carried out to define the stimulating effect of Tribestan on rams that were intended for breeding as well as on rams that exhibited sexual impotence and deteriorated semen qualities. The oral application of the preparation, following the pattern suggested by the authors, led to extending the period of sexual activity and to improvement of the semen production of the rams over the service period. The results of Tribestan therapy with rams having affected libido sexualis showed that the animals could recover up to the 7th-8th day with no essential morphologic changes in the structure of both testes and epididymides. The use of the preparation led to considerably influencing the endocrine activity of the testis, raising the testosterone level, and normalizing the sexual activity of rams affected with coital impotence.
