Testicular cytological profiles of apparently healthy male dromedary camels during rutting and non-rutting periods

Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate testicular cytological profiles of apparently healthy dromedary bulls during rutting and non-rutting periods. Pairs of testes from 26 (18 non-rutting and 8 rutting seasons) dromedary bulls 6–12 years old that were slaughtered at Akaki, Addis Ababa abattoir were sampled.
