Did you know there is a reversible, alternative to surgical castration which offers the same benefits without surgery?
Medical castration is a temporary non-surgical solution for desexing male dogs. It is a resorbable contraceptive implant administered by your veterinarian. The implant is inserted like a microchip beneath the skin between your dog’s shoulders during a consultation, there is no need to leave your dog for the day. Medical castration does not need your dog to have a general anaesthetic or surgery.
For male dogs, medical desexing (castration) provides the benefits of surgical desexing without surgery, general anaesthesia or testes removal. The implant is gradually resorbed by the body and does not need to be removed.
Once the implant wears off, the dog’s fertility will gradually return.* If you would like to continue the effect of medical castration then a new implant can be administered at either six or twelve months after the initial implant as recommended by your veterinarian.
