AbstractThe objective of this study was to compare two different fecal metabolites extraction protocols32,33 and two commercial kits used to analyse fecal glucocorticoids (cortisol and corticosterone) in ocelots (Leopardus pardalis) submitted to hormonal treatment and video-laparoscopy procedure. Based on hormonal analyses, both extraction protocols exhibited similar performance. One commercial kit (ICN Biomedicals) had better results than another (DPC) on glucocorticoids metabolites evaluation.
