As Easy as Microchipping

Non-surgical Castration

Sexually mature animals present various problems for their owners and society - unwanted pregnancies, antisocial or inappropriate behaviour, escaping etc. Until recently, the oly option for male dogs was surgical castration. A breakthrough treatment in veterinary medicine now offers all the benefits of castration without the surgery.

Many dog owners are unwilling to opt for surgical castration and elect instead to manage the problems of an entire, sexually mature animal. Now there is an alternative to surgical castration, Suprelorin.


Suprelorin (Deslorelin) offers an alternative that requires no anaesthetic and is simple to use, it's as easy a microchipping. A single treatment can supress fertility for at least 6 months.

It can be used for long or short term suppression of reproductive function of dogs and in situations where a reduced testosterone level is required, such as controlling antisocial behaviour and treating prostatic enlargement.

Suprelorin contains a Gonadotrophin Releasing Hormone (GnRH) agonist, it is an extremely potent drug that controls fertility by suppressing the function of the pituitary-gonadal axis. It produces a reversible down regulation of male dogs hormones resulting in temporary infertility.
