What could our field do with new drugs or vaccines to prevent unwanted litters, without surgery? Joyce Briggs, President of the Alliance for Contraception in Cats and Dogs (ACC&D), discusses the status of research on non-surgical sterilants and how ACC&D (and others) are helping to further research and availability to ensure the most progressive and safe tools become available to our field. This presentation was part of the 2013 ASPCA/Maddie's® Shelter Medicine Conference.
