There's more than one way to crack a nut

Did you know there is a reversible, alternative to surgical castration which offers the same benefits without surgery.

Research has shown a growing change in the attitude of pet owners towards permanent castration.

The permanency of surgery has been cited as the reason why 67% of owners with entire male dogs have not yet opted for the procedure2.
