Introducing Laser Therapy to Prineville Veterinary Clinic

The Companion Therapy Laser™ system provides a non-invasive modality that initiates numerous physiological and biological processes. In summary, it stimulates the animal to heal itself. Laser therapy relieves pain while promoting advanced healing techniques on everything from lacerations to chronic joint pain.

Prineville Veterinary Clinic is now offering Zeuterin!

Zeuterin, a solution consisting of a specific mixture of Zinc Gluconate and L-Arginine, allows veterinarians to provide a safer, more comfortable method of neutering male dogs.  This FDA approved process, consisting of a single injection of Zeuterin to each testes, quickly and permanently neuters dogs, with no surgical intervention or general anesthesia needed. 

Zinc is a natural spermicide, and when injected into the testes, begins to work in two ways.  The Zeuterin solution is calibrated to destroy existing spermatozoa in both the seminiferous tubules and the epididymis.  The empty seminiferous tubules then collapse.  Over the next several days, the healing process creates scar tissue, which blocks the travel of spermatozoa from the seminiferous tubules and rete testis.  As sperm must pass through these structures for excretion to be complete, the buildup of scar tissue renders the dog completely and permanently neutered.

Unlike surgical neutering, the testes themselves are left intact, and able to produce a reduced amount of testosterone.  Studies have found that low levels of testosterone can protect certain breeds from illness and issues with metabolic functioning.  Neutering by any method is not a guarantee of changed behavior. Dogs may or may not continue to exhibit mating or aggressive behaviors after the procedure.  These behaviors are quite complex and not fully dependent on hormonal influences.  Neutering should not be performed strictly as a method of behavior modification.

The Zeuterin method of neutering can only be performed by veterinarians who have successfully completed our training, and have been certified in the procedure.

I will never be able to thank all of you for what you have done for Teddy and I. I was so scared he was not going to make it through out all of his problems with his skin. I knew he would be all I would have some day to get me through these lonely times. A very special thank you to Dr. Schultz you are a miracle Doctor. So very grateful for your being there when we needed you. The phone calls you made checking on Teddy meant so very much. Teddy is doing great. Thanks so very much to all of you.
