Default Non-surgical Neuter?

This could make a world of difference to rescue!

And suddenly instead of antifreeze in the water bowls at confo shows there's a whole 'nother thing to worry about.

All I could think was what about dogs that go through rescue, have had this done, then get neutered because they don't know it's been done? Potentially making rescues spend money on a dog that is already neutered

^ In the video it looks like they tattoo him and give him a tag that says he's been "zeutered". Not fool proof, especially the tag, but maybe if this becomes a big enough thing the tattoo will be recognizable enough to vets and rescues.

Very interesting!

The prospect of non-surgical neutering is, Iím guessing, going to be more exciting to people who deal with strays and rescues than it will be to most private practice vets, for whom surgical neutering is bread-and-butter work. Then again, Iíve definitely heard people (usually male people), stress over the idea of dog castration; zeutering would be a way to avoid your dog becoming a baby daddy while maintaining the integrity of his ball sacs
^ That was my first thought. More people who don't want their dogs to lose their "manliness" might get their dogs sterilized, which would be excellent.

ETA: I worried about the tattoo's relevance. It just looked like a "Z." At this point in time most people would be like, "WTF? Oh, whatever. Let's get the neuter on with." This would have to become BIG for people to avoid neutering dogs that have already been "zeutered."

That's why they're tattooed with I think its a square? Couldn't make it our quite clearly, but it looked different than the regular green line neuters get normally now.

I couldn't get the video to play; does it stop hormone production? Or just make the dog infertile?
