Products under development
Products currently available for cat and dog contraception are the tip of the iceberg! GonaConTM, Calcium chloride, and SuprelorinTM (for cats and female dogs) are three products in development stages. GonaConTM formulations have been studied in cats and dogs of both sexes; at present, ACC&D is optimistic about its potential for female cats, particularly free-roaming populations. Calcium chloride has also been studied in both dogs and cats, and has potential for use in males of both species. And SuprelorinTM, which is approved for male dog contraception, has shown promise for felines as well as female dogs.
The regulatory approval process for new products is neither quick nor inexpensive. Consequently, it will take time for new options to become available. The fact that new potential products are being explored—and The Michelson Prize & Grants program has energized the field with generous grant funds and a $25 million award—offers great hope for the field and the animals that non-surgical fertility control will benefit.
