Question Answer
Features of steroids?Have steroid ring structure, analogues of testosterone (*↑ mm strength, ↑ positive nitrogen balance, ↑ retention of ions (Na, Ca, K, P), ↑ myelopoiesis- blood cell production)
Indications of anabolic steroids?For catabolic diseases - mm wasting dz, chronic degenerative dz, aplastic anemia, chronic anemia, lymphoma
*What are the effects of Alkyated anabolic steroids?Azotemia (too many nitrogenous substances such as urea, creatinine)
Hypernatremia (↑ water retention, lead to myocardial infarction),
hypercalcemia, hyperkalemia, hyperphosphatemia → probs in rate & rhythm of heart.
Hepatopathy in cats
Why do they cause repro problems?Testosterone analogue- affect sperm production, estrus suppression in female
*contraindications of anabolic steroids?No animals with *prostrate hypertrophy, & preg animals (bc teratogenic) no food animals, no reproducing animals (↓ sperm quality & estrus)
Anabolic steroids we cover? (4)Stanozolol, Nandrolone, Boldenone undecyclenate, Diethyl stilbesterol
Stanozolol is used for which animals? How do you administer it? Side effects & contraindications are?Dogs, cats, horses sheep & goat. Oral & parenteral. (Management of catabolic disease states) same as general contraindications (stand with the usual fuckin' animals)

Contras- food animals, pregers, begnin prostatic hypertrophy in dogs, breeding stallions.
*Nandrolone is used in which animals? To tx what?Dogs & cats. Chronic anemia & aplastic anemia. (Got blood? NAN to speak of)
*Boldenone undecyclenate used for?Long acting anabolic steroid for HORSES. ↑ appetite & weight gain, improve nitrogen balance, reduce overexertion during exercise. Can cause aggressiveness & reduced sperm count (horses are as big as boulders)
*Diethyl stilbesterol used for? Precautions?Management of estrogen-responsive urinary incontinence (spayed female) & Perianal gland adenoma (intact male dogs). *Carcinogenic in nature
