There are 70 million stray animals in the United States with a 1-billion-dollar burden to taxpayers for catching, caging and killing strays each year. Currently, the only solution to this epidemic is to surgically remove the sex organs of cats and dogs. Surgery is intrusive, has associated risks, requires sterile facilities and a monitored recovery time. There simply aren’t enough veterinarians in the U.S. to perform the number of surgeries necessary to solve this problem. 

Nutt Bio is developing TriSteris, a non-surgical, intratesticular injectable sterilant to address this problem in a more cost-effective manner, thereby increasing the number of sterilizations performed, which in turn will better control animal numbers. This method is easily and safely administered in a field setting. A solution of this magnitude would result in a paradigm shift in animal welfare.
