Description

Suprelorin implants are used in 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. 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.

45 An alternative to castration
Verified Purchase

By on 28 October 2019

Expensive, but gives you a chance to decide if castration is the answer, without the finality

55 Works well for ferrets
Verified Purchase

By on 22 February 2019

I am in the US where it is very difficult to get this for my ferrets. When I do find it it's very expensive. The price is very fair even with the shipping. The package arrived within a few days and was well wrapped. My vet is very pleased with the implant.

55 Use in chickens
Verified Purchase

By on 9 April 2017

Fantastic to help in treatment of yolk peritonitis and reproductive tract tumours in chickens, although sometimes has only laster 6 weeks. Well worth it to a retired hen months-years of happy healthy life.

45 A must product
Verified Purchase

By on 19 October 2015

Though not licensed for felines yet in this country, this is a great product to stop breeding queens having constant seasons and running the risk of pyometra. It is widely used throughout Europe and is becoming ever more popular within the United Kingdom by breeders that do not want their felines to overbreed

Humping in dogs

Gill

Hi if a dog has the implant does it stop it humping? Mine have had the implant in for 3 weeks now but they still want to hump & chase bitches that are in season

  • VioVet Staff

Over time this behaviour may stop as it can take 6 weeks for Suprelorin to be fully effective. However for some dogs this is now a learned behaviour and whilst the Suprelorin will be working to induce temporary infertility in your dogs the behaviour may or may not change.

Buying and administering

Alison Briggs

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: Derbyshire , United Kingdom

Could I get a prescription from my vet and administer myself
Or get a prescription and get my vet to administer
As the cost through the vet was astronomical

  • VioVet Staff

Yes we would be happy to supply you with Suprelorin with a prescription from your vet. It would be best for your vet to then administer the Suprelorin but it is up to them to decide whether they are happy for you to administer it or not.

How long does this keep?

Becca

  • VioVet customer since 2014
  • From: Bedfordshire, United Kingdom

I notice these come in packs of two. Does the second implant keep, or do they both need to be used at the same time (obviously on different animals!)?
If they keep, how long for please? Thanks!

  • VioVet Staff

Each implant comes in a sterilised, sealed foil packet and has a shelf life of 2 years so are fine to keep.

Suprelorin dosage

Danielle Jones

I have a border collie aged 5yrs. Is the 4.7mg dosage what I need? I wish to try out Suprelorin to see if it will stop him from 'humping' people. I am unsure if I should get him castrated, but if this product dampens his testosterone levels and his libido it would indicate what he would be like if castrated. I have done a lot of research on the pros and cons of castration and I believe that it reduces testosterone levels by 90% leaving a vital 10% for good health, whereas continued use of Suprelorin would remove 100%. Obviously there is a risk of being under a general anaesthetic, but there is also a risk of infection with a foreign body under his skin. Please advise. Also are there any customer reviews?

  • VioVet Staff

This is a prescription product and your vet has to decide what implant to use if you go for this. Personally I would say that the behaviour you are seeing might at least partly be learned and ingrained. Castration or the use of the implant might not affect it. The potential side effects of the implant are very unlikely to be significant, so personally I would try one and see if it has the desired result. If it does, then I would choose castration above repeated use of implants in future, but again your vet can advise you.

Feline use of superlorin

Charlene Smith

Can I use YOUR product? I have used on one female. Is it reversible if implant removed?

  • VioVet Staff

This product is licensed for use in dogs and ferrets in the UK, though sometimes it is used in cats and can be perfectly effective. It is possible to remove the implant surgically if reversal of the effect is desired, but care must be taken not to break the implant. The effect usually wears off anyway after a number of months, though in any case return to full fertility cannot be guaranteed.
