|Participants will receive a basic overview of non-surgical sterilization and its potential applications. There will be a focus on potential emerging technologies and an overview of the use of Zeuterin™, the only FDA-approved non-surgical sterilant for use in male dogs.
While reviewing the potential new technologies, the participants will discuss potential uses for these technologies, such as contraception of feral cats and free-roaming dogs in developing countries.
The mechanism of action of potential and current non-surgical sterilant and contraceptive technologies will be reviewed. Concerns regarding the health and behavioral aspects of non-surgical sterilization will also be addressed.
A question and answer period will provide an opportunity for participants to express their concerns and share possible uses.
