Abstract

The effect of the administration of spironolactone, deacetylspironolactone, aldadiene or soldactone on the concentration of plasma testosterone, estradiol, and cortisol was examined in male dogs. Decreases of 60 to 75% in plasma testosterone and estradiol occur only at high doses (100 mg/kg) of spironolactone or deacetylspironolactone but not at low doses of spironolactone (5 to 10 mg/kg); they occur concomitantly with similar decreases of androgen formation by the testis. No decreases were detected with aldadiene or soldactone. Treatment of dogs with spironolactone (100 mg/kg) also lowered by 50 to 65% the concentration of cortisol in adrenal venous plasma.
