THE skeletal mass of adult dogs of both sexes can be significantly increased by administering exogenous bovine growth hormone (0.5 mg/kg/day for 84 days) without inducing acromegaly or diabetes. This increase is a consequence of a marked rise in new bone formation. The new bone is histologically and microradiographically normal.
