Single Injection Dog Sterilization (Non surgical method of Dog sterilization) using Zeuterin

Zinc Gluconate is a compound based on Zinc which is a natural ingredient in the body that offers a safe, permanent and virtually painless alternative to surgical castration.

 Zeuterin consists of sterile water, Zinc gluconate, and the amino acid arginine  and produces infertility in male dogs by chemical disruption of the testicle; it is intended as an alternative to surgical neutering. Before being allowed to administer Zeuterin, veterinarians must complete a five-hour course teaching them the correct location and manner to inject the drug. Properly administered, Zeuterin is considered to be 99.6% effective when given to dogs three to ten months of age. Outside of the United States it is also known by the trade name Esterilsol.

The drug could be delivered through an injection to the testis, now veterinarians can sterilize male dogs with ease and confidence. The drug is now approved by the FDA and available in the USA.

Before the c-section, ask the animal owner about

1) The age of the doe and her kidding history.

2) The amount of time in hard labor. The quicker you get your doe to the vet, the better her odds of recovery.

3) Her tetanus vaccination status. She may need tetanus antitoxin after surgery.

4) Milk half of her colostrum before she is anesthetized. If any kids survive, you can bottle feed an undrugged meal or two. If you have surplus colostrum, freeze it for future use.
