Gonad removal in small animals
Long-term health complications of gonad removal in small animals, what’s all the fuss about? As veterinarians, we’re constantly weighing up risk vs benefit when it comes to the clinical decisions we make. We constantly get asked about when you should desex small animals. The challenge is that as veterinary medicine has advanced the lives and longevity of the animals we treat, living longer has begun to expose some of the unintended consequences of long-established procedures like gonad removal.

“The changing landscape of desexing: vasectomy, ovarian sparing spay, non-surgical, or not at all? The current evidence.”
In his webinar presentation on the changing landscape of desexing, Dr Mason highlighted the importance of keeping up with the times, “just because we were taught [desexing] at university, doesn’t mean we should keep doing it.” He emphasised how the best practice is to take a personalised approach. For this, “we need to consider all options, not just those we were taught at university or what the council says. It is timely to remember to put the medical needs [of the pet] and preferences of the pet owner first.”

How small things can make big differences in small animal veterinary medicine
Australian dog owners have changed. How can you embrace these changes to attract new clients and keep more of your existing ones?
Refining your communication skills, both verbal and non-verbal is important for small animal vets to continually work on. Client-centred care not only helps strengthen the bond between you and your client, it can result in better outcomes for the patient as well as pet owners become engaged, cooperative and compliant.
Presented by Dr Claire Stevens, BVSc. (Hons), Veterinarian, Author, Trainer
Desexing a Dog with Suprelorin?
Suprelorin is an implant containing deslorelin, a slow-release Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone (GnRH) agonist for medium to long term suppression of testosterone.
For long term control of testosterone and fertility, Suprelorin can be administered annually during an annual health check consultation. Suprelorin is also beneficial for owners who want to try a temporary and reversible solution when the permanent effect of castration may be uncertain. Suprelorin enables the veterinary practice to offer the very best, most up to date treatment options for their clients.
