Emma is going on the road this summer! She will be presenting at the Alliance for Contraception for Cats and Dogs Conference! Animal Balance has been using non-surgical techniques to sterilize dogs around the world since 2004. When Emma started AB, the original goal was to use non-surgical methods, but alas the technology was not ready. AB often used a combo approach, giving people as many choices as possible to sterilize their animals. In 2004 and 2006, AB offered Neutersol to the farmers on the Galapagos Islands. In 2009, AB offered Esterilsol on American Samoa and the Dominican Republic. In 2010, AB received a grant to train our Medical Director as a trainer for Zeuterin. Animal Balance strives to use the most humane and efficient methods to sterilize the animals that are available. We travel to remote islands around the world with 100's of pounds of medical gear, surgical instruments and anesthesia machines, in tote boxes. Ask anyone who has done a campaign with us! The team carries in all necessary supplies. This often requires lengthy processes to grant permissions for all of these supplies from the various governments. The behind the scenes work that has to happen to make this clinics work is immense. We are dreaming of the day when we can reduce the supply list by needing to bring in only vials of injectable medications. Our colleagues at ACC&D keep a vigilant eye on the latest developments within this field. As AB has so much experience with the field use of zinc gluconate, Emma has been asked to present at the ACC&D conference in Boston in July. She will share everything that the team has learned over the years, so that when the next product comes along, the 'research lab' to 'field use' transition can be as safe as affective as possible. #savingallspecies #humanesolutions #spay #neuter #sterilize
