KANSAS CITY, MO, April 10, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A recent clinical study by the National Institute of Health (NIH) in Washington, DC revealed that neutering animals have negative psychological effects.
The study entitled Gonadectomy Negatively Impacts Social Behavior of Adolescent Male Primates revealed " for the first time that neutering animals affects social stimuli which includes behaviorial responses to social cues."
The report determined that neutering significantly impairs social dominance in both naturalistic setting and changes reactions to social stimuli in experimental settings.
The two year study which included the testing of monkey's, involved fully castrated animals and animals neutered with Neuticles- testicular implants for pets. Those animals with the testicular implants exhibited significantly higher levels of self confidence, self esteem and courage as opposed to those participants who had previously been altered without the implants.
"While we welcome these findings, this is precisely what we have maintained since the introduction of Neuticles 18 years ago," said Neuticles inventor and recipient of the IG Nobel Peace Prize for Medicine in 2005.
"I've spoken to thousands of pet owners through the years who have experienced for themselves their beloved pet acting and functioning exactly the same after being Neuticled"
Miller said the pet owners compared neutered pets they had owned that didn't receive the implants. "Every pet owner in one way or another noticed that their pet appeared depressed and different- changed."
"I wouldn't have neutered had it not been for Neuticles," said pet owner Shawna Henrie of Los Angeles, CA. who has used the implants in three of her Weimaraner's over the past 17 years.
"Of course pets know their testicles are missing after a traditional neutering," Henrie said. "But with Neuticles they don't- its like nothing ever changed"
