If all non-profits could neuter male dogs non-surgically today, it would pour over $50 million dollars into the animal welfare community. Dr. Robert Weedon, Visiting Clinical Instructor of Shelter Medicine at the University of Illinois and Shelter Veterinarian of Champaign County Humane Society, discusses the technology behind ZeuterinTM, the only FDA-approved nonsurgical sterilant for use in male dogs. This presentation, given at the 2013 ASPCA/Maddie's® Shelter Medicine Conference outlines the importance of training and proper injection technique, tips for successful implementation and real-life examples of how animal welfare groups are currently using it.
