Abstract

Retrograde ejaculation and hypothyroidism were diagnosed in a 19-mo-old Labrador retriever. The retrograde ejaculation was reversed following the administration of the sympathomimetic agent, pseudoephedrine hydrochloride, at a dose of 4 mg/kg per os given 1 and 3 h before semen collection. Antegrade ejaculation failed to occur after normalization of serum thyroid hormone levels by thyroxine supplementation. The pathophysiology of retrograde ejaculation is reviewed.
