Case Study 2. Hypersexuality and Tardak injection


Tardak (delmadinone acetate) is a potent anti-androgen 17 to 40X
the potency of progesterone. It is used for 3 indications

1. To treat hypersexuality (inhibit intersitial cedll stimulating hormone -->reduced testosterone production --> decrease libido. So it will be effective for dogs that hump cushions daily. Tardak 1.9 ml SC


2. Prostrate hypertrophy - due to chronic inflammatory process, benign hypertrophy or carcinoma. In inflammations, need to give antibiotics and corticoid.



3. Circum-anal tumours
Respond favourably so long as they are small.the larger they are at first treatment, the less encouraging is the prognosis.
