Suprelorin implants are mainly used in entire male dogs in order to induce temporary infertility. Treated dogs will become infertile after about 6 weeks and remain so for about 6 months or more.
Contains the hormone deslorelin acetate.
Indications for use:
- Male dog: For the induction of temporary infertility in healthy, intact, sexually mature male dogs.
- Prepubertal female dog: For the induction of temporary infertility to delay the first oestrus and heat signs, and to prevent pregnancy at a young age in intact and healthy sexually immature female dogs. The implant should be administered between 12 and 16 weeks of age.
- Male cat: For the induction of temporary infertility and suppression of urine odour and of sexual behaviours such as libido, vocalisation, urine marking, and aggressiveness in intact male cats from 3 months of age.
If a new implant is provided every 6 months, then permanent infertility can be achieved.
Occasionally a dog which has received a Suprelorin implant will mate and tie with a bitch in season. This mating will be very unlikely to result in fertilisation and pregnancy, but appropriate checks should be made as necessary to verify this.
If a new implant is not provided after 6 months duration, then any return to fertility may or may not occur.
