Dr. Jennifer Coates DVM, I like neutering dogs. Now don't get all Freudian on me, my reasons are medical in nature. It's a straightforward procedure, and unpleasant surprises are rare.

Contrary to what many owners (mostly men) think, the pain associated with the surgery is easily controlled with injections of local anesthetics into the spermatic cords and around the small skin incision, and ordinary pain relievers.

Apparently with sport dogs - like flyball and disc, most people are waiting til at least a year or two to neuter/spay their dogs. The medical findings of late have been that allowing a dog to reach its full physical development reduces the risk of injury later.

Chemical neutering ... I dunno. As mentioned in the article, there are definite health benefits to neutering.

I'd still opt for the surgery, I'd like to see longitudinal studies on a lot of dogs before I'd hop on the wagon. But I think for some it will be a good option and I"m happy it's available thanks for posting it.
