Bob Barker Won't Like This

At the end of every The Prices Right show, Bob Barker always reminds the audience to spay and neuter your pet. Well, if Peptech gets their product approved, there will no longer be a need for neutering your dog. Peptech, based out of Australia, has a product that will render the male canine unable to produce sperm and reduce aggressive behaviors by curtailing testosterone production. The product contains deslorelin, sometimes called Suprelorin, which is the active drug. It is an implant and Peptech claims it is completely reversable if you decide you want to breed your dog at a later time.

Some questions:

-Do you consider this a viable alternative to neutering?
-Do you see any downside to using this product which comes at a price of around $50-$70 dollars for 6 months?
-What are your thoughts about chemically altering a pet, a human, for convenience sake?
