Parsemus Foundation recognized by journal

The Parsemus Foundation was awarded the 2019 Editor’s Choice Innovation Award in Complementary Medicine by the Innovative Veterinary Care Journal. This award recognizes the work that the foundation has done in the area of hormone-sparing dog sterilization.

Our goal is to serve as an educational resource for pet owners and veterinarians about the research on health problems associated with traditional spay and neuter. When ovaries or testes are removed, natural hormones are also decreased for the lifetime of the pet, which can result in a number of health issues like cancer and mobility problems. Your pet’s hormones can be preserved when you sterilize it — see our pages on ovary sparing spay for females and hormone-sparing male sterilization.
