Embryonic development, conception rate, ovarian function and structure in pregnant rabbits heat-stressed before or during implantation



Embryonic development, conception rate, ovarian function and structure in pregnant rabbits heat-stressed before or during implantation



Animal Reproduction Science 17(3-4): 259-270



Rabbits were heat-stressed during 2 stages of pregnancy: (1) during the early stages of blastocyst formation and rapid growth of the corpus luteum (days 3-5), and (2) during implantation (days 6-8). Hyperthermia was induced (increase of 1.2 degrees C in body temp.) in which feed intake was reduced to 33% of that of non-heat-stressed controls. Both treatments reduced the CR to 59% vs. 74 for controls. The development of the live embryos was retarded in group-1 only.
