Abstract

Colpocytology was performed in ten female cats of unknown breed, granted by the Hospital Veterinário Governador Laudo Natel of FCAVJ-UNESP, which remained in individual cages, with balanced feeding and water “ad libitum”. Estrous cycle phases were defined by classification and by couting scaled of epithelial cells from vagina. In that trial, it was observed that the number of anuclear superficial cells prevailed during proestrus and oestrus, while nucleated superficial cells were found in greater number at proestrus. Parabasal and intermediate cells were present at metestrum and anestrus in more expressive numbers. Regarding parabasal cells, there was a prevailance at the anestrus stage.
