Title:Zinc-Neutering as an Alternative (Non-Surgical) Castration Method
The thesis should give an overview of a new method of male dog castration, which was already approved and applied in the United States and South America since 2003. A simple injection of zinc-gluconate neutralized with arginine into the testicles shall induce permanent infertility. The producer of the solution claimed its application to be cheap, safe and effective. Therefore, it could be assumed to be a new alternative castration method for broad application in controlling animal populations and to fight dog overpopulations.
