Castration is a routine procedure which efficiently solves several issues in veterinary medicine. However, many pet owners are conflicted about the idea of surgical castration. It is not entirely difficult to see why. There are many ways in which human social and psychological issues are projected onto pets, and the thought that somebody would be castrated for non-essential medical reasons is unnerving to many people. The notion that a companion animal would be mutilated can be distressing. Most people, and vets, are opposed to other body alterations such as declawing cats, debarking dogs, and tail and ear cropping, so it’s not much of a leap to see how castration falls into the same category. From this, it’s not surprising that as many as 1/3 of pet owners would prefer an alternative to surgical castration.
In our new webinar, “More than one way to crack a nut: Alternative to surgical castration”, Vicki Adams covers the discussion around castration and the alternatives to surgical castration available to pet owners. Viki will explain the importance of understanding that not all pet owners are comfortable with surgery, and help you learn how to communicate effectively with pet owners about surgical castration. Specifically, she will be talking about Suprelorin outlining what it is, how it works, and why you might want to consider using it in the future.
