Our animal hospital offers Zeutering by client request, on a case-by-case basis.
An FDA approved method, Zeutering is a non-surgical way to neuter male dogs without the use of anesthesia, that leaves the testicles intact. The neutering process uses ZeuterinTM, a solution of zinc gluconate neutralized by arginine. The method not only reduces the cost of neutering, but there is little recovery time, no irritation and no stitches. In addition, males are left with up to 50% of their testosterone.
How It Works
Dogs are sedated and a small needle is used to inject ZeuterinTM into each testicle. The dogs’ bellies are then tattooed with a “Z” to indicate that they are sterilized. Sedation is reversed and, after just a few moments, the dogs are awake, alert and ready to go home!
