Interesting views ladies.

I've personally never had a male that has problems with neutering, it's usually a day or so of no running and jumping then everything is fine.

You're right Birgit anywhere blood vessels are gives a portal to other parts of the body.

Peace and long life - Jules

Interesting article but not sure if I would be comfortable with it yet and just stick to the snip for now

Candy,
I agree that the less invasive the better if there is a choice. But the term invasive needs to be used not limited to surgery but including substances that could be dangerous invading the body. Overdoses of zinc don't sound like a good idea to me.
Most of the dogs that have trouble recovering from neuter surgeries (done well) had to have a more invasive abdominal surgery to remove undescended testicles. These have to be removed in any case so getting an injection would not solve the problem here.

Definitely need answers to all the questions that have been raised and that means a long term study, which might also put the boys at risk.

From a shelter perspective, the less invasive, the better. Some of our poor boys have a hard time recovering from their procedure.
I'm agreed, though, that it would require more information regarding how the drugs effect the rest of the body, etc.

For people who don't like the idea of traditional neutering they can also have the vet do a vasectomy, but if the dog ever ends up in rescue it will undergo another surgery. Chemicals that kill cells will kill all the cells they can get to. Last I heard there are blood vessels in the testicles so any drugs will travel. I suspect this is all about some company making a bunch of money from zinc they can't sell as a nutrional supplement any more. emoticon

Neutering does so much more then just stopping reproduction. Does the injections? The stuff they are injecting into the body, what does it do to the other organs? I have trouble believing anything you put in your body stays in one place.

I agree. I'd want to see more info on it as to what these chemicals could do to their body in the future.

This article is interesting. I don't entirely agree with leaving testicles on an animal that doesn't use them. Neutering is one thing but what about things like cancer etc.

What do you all think?
