What Types of Diagnostic Tests Are Used to Evaluate the Male Feline Reproductive Tract?

  • A thorough physical examination and complete history are imperative for the successful management of any reproductive disorder. Diagnostic tests are tailored to the individual patient.

  • A complete blood count, biochemical profile and urinalysis are important parts of any baseline workup. The urine is often cultured for bacteria. Infection, inflammation and other systemic disorders must be ruled out.

  • Tests for feline leukemia virus and feline immunodeficiency virus may be performed.

  • Blood tests that measure testosterone levels and thyroid hormone levels may be indicated in some cases.

  • Abdominal ultrasonography may be performed to assess the bladder and adjacent organs.

  • Semen analysis in the tom usually requires electroejaculation. Collected semen is examined microscopically and cultured for bacteria.
