      This is a new option that was brought to my attention and I'm hoping for some clarification. I have a male at home who is a poor candidate for surgery, and just rescued a female. The female appears healthy enough for surgery, but the vets in our area have very little experience with rat spays.

      I know you've used it on your males, which is why I'm messaging you. I've also seen others who used it to spay females, and am told it provides may of the same benefits.

      My question is... people keep mentioning that it's good for up to a year. I see people state that you have to do it again when it "wears off", which is fine... but how do you know when it "wears off"? Given that I want to use this as contraception, this is CRUCIAL to me. I simply cannot have an accidental litter.

      Any advice is appreciated. I have one vet hours from here who is willing to do the implant, and one locally who is happy to consider it.

      My rat Pogo just tested positive for CAR B. I noticed a thread where you were discussing going through the same, and were considering letting your colony die off. Can I ask if you ever decided to go through with that, or did you continue to bring in new rats despite the diagnosis?
