|Has anyone any experience with Suprelorin Implants?
I am thinking this is a viable solution for when I have an intact female in the house with my intact male.
I do not have kennels and I do not plan to breed my female but I do intend on competing with her/showing her so I will be keeping them intact.
Suprelorin is a drug released and authorized for use in Australia and the EU since the early 2000s. It's a chip implant that works for 6- or 12- month durations (depending which you want) that releases chemicals into the male's body which blocks testosterone production rendering a male sterile for the duration.
I'm thinking I will use a 6-month implant starting from early Fall, since the females cycle usually only 1x a year during the winter.
It is not yet approved for use in the USA but I was wondering if any of our overseas Dogsters have had experience with it or any other information on it.
Much thanks! I'm happy to have found what seems like a workable solution.
