Treatment with the drug buserelin, which works by suppressing secretion of FSH and LH from the pituitary gland, may help.
Stallions which do not fully recover breeding capacity after temporary castration via a vaccine that works against reproductive hormone GnRH can now be assisted through daily injections of buserelin, a GnRH agonist, said European researchers.
Intramuscular injections of buserelin every morning, starting two months before breeding season and continuing throughout the season, appear to restore both libido and fertility to pre-castration levels, she said.
"But fortunately we now know that buserelin injections can help moderate that risk."
"Every time one of these stallions was injected with the buserelin, there was a significant jump in testosterone level within just a few hours," Vidament said.
