New Drug Sterilizes Male Dogs Without Surgery! Learn About Zeuterin™

An exciting new product called Zeuterin™ was announced at the 2014 Western Veterinary Conference. Zeuterin™ is a zinc gluconate solution (neutralized by
According to the manufacturer, "Having just received final FDA approval for distribution of the product, Ark Sciences Inc. announced the launch of Zeuterin™ ™ Injectable Solution (Zinc Gluconate Neutralized by Arginine), the only FDA-approved solution to sterilize 3-to-10-month old dogs, the typical ages when dogs are recommended to be sterilized."

The procedure is considered non-invasive and utilizes a zinc-based active ingredient that is injected directly into each testicle. In FDA clinical trials, Zeuterin™ ™ was found to be safe, effective and permanent. According to the manufacturer, the most common adverse reactions were vomiting, loss of appetite, and lethargy.

Chemical neutering is an alternative to traditional castration that requires no anesthesia or surgery. The low cost and speed of injection makes it ideal for use at shelters and veterinary clinics. The procedure is simple but training is required to ensure the product is used correctly and successfully.

According to the manufacturer, the next step is to immediately begin delivering it to the more than 400 U.S. veterinarians trained and certified by the company to use it.

The Western Veterinary Conference meets every February in Las Vegas Nevada. This meeting is a large continuing education meeting for veterinarian. Thousands of veterinarians attend the show to learn about new developments in veterinary medicine and to receive required continuing education credits required for state license maintenance. Manufacturers, drug representative, pet food vendors, equipment vendors from around the world also attend this show to present and sell equipment. New products such as Zeuterin™ are frequently announced at WVC and similar shows.

I hope this information gives you more information about the new drug Zeuterin™ (available from Ark Sciences Inc.) as a nonsurgical alternative to castrating male dogs.
