contraceptives for dogs?


Recommended Posts

A couple of threads from the General discussion got me wondering... is chemical contraception for dogs not feasible, practical or possible? It seems some folks aren't ready to cut the tubes just yet, but don't want a pregnancy either. And in one instance a pregnancy may have happenned despite reassurances. Seems like a depot contraceptive would suit the situation very well - does it exist?

There are some things you can use to supress heat cycles, but they all have side effects, and some are considered performance-enhancing drugs by the by-laws of certain types of competition. In addition, as soon as you stop them, the dog comes into heat, and you can't continue them indefinitely.


There's some thought about using zona-pellucida vaccines, but personally I wouldn't risk it if I wanted to breed the bitch later.
