In this research, 9 German shepherd dogs were provided, 5 of which was considered as our experimental group and the remaining 4 was considered as our control group. The necessary examinations were conducted to guarantee their health and we approved the absence of diabetes with Intravenous Tolerance Test (IVGTT).We injected intravenously Alloxan mono hydrate with 100 mg kg 1 in experimental group.
