A Ph.D. student from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Zootechnics of the Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), runs an experiment with a natural drug in dog croquettes, whose goal is to sterilize them non-invasively.
Mexico tops the list with 23 million canines that are abandoned or lost. The Mexican Association of Veterinary Doctors Specialists in Small Animals says that the figures increase by 20% each year.
The student of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Livestock, Sheila Irais Peña, developed and patented a method of birth control that is non-invasive and has no negative effects on the breeds.
“It is in an experimental stage, our idea is to find a solution that is not harmful to dogs, or invasive as surgical sterilization, in addition, there are also other ways to sterilize dogs that can cause problems,” said student Sheila Irais Peña Corona.
It should be noted that during December and January in Mexico, people often give away puppies, and many of them end up abandoned, making the problem worse. This could be a very good solution.
