Season Suppressants For Bitches.


Recommended Posts

HI All,

I was after your opinions in regards to Season Suppressants.

A friend told me she has put her two aging bitches on a product as one is 14 yrs old & the other is 9 yrs and would not survive any survive due to

throat problems so de sexing for both is out of the question.

A vet has prescribed her ETHYLESTRENOL 0.5ml tablets. (I think this is also called Nandoral?)

What other suppressants is there with not many side effects?

She was told their is an "Implant" but has several side effests, no idea of the name of it.

After some googling I discovered that some greyhound racers have used Nitrotain paste, I think this is actually sold as a horse paste and works for some bitches.

Or there's Laurabolin injections given every 28 days. Would a vet have to come every 28 days (therefore costing more each visit.)

Have you or know of some one whom has tried any of these? Any side effects?

Superlorin might be an option- it is an implant. It can cause them to come in before causing suppression depending on the time it is given. The benefit being it lasting 12mths at a time. I have used it on males without any hassles.

I am not sure if it is 'on label' for use in bitches but there is information available on the internet regarding its use.

I have not had experience with any of the other options.
