Dogs can soon go on 'The Pill', too

(WFLX) - If you're not asking Santa for a whole litter of puppies this holiday season, there's a new option to keep you from getting one. But it's something sure to raise a few eyebrows.

Researchers say they've developed a contraceptive pill, they say, will make a female dog completely sterile. They look like little pink pebbles. Now, your dog can be on the pill.

A vet developed the pill, known as "Chem Spay", and it supposedly has no side effects. In other words, no hormonal issues for your dog.

The developer says the pill is an alternative to making a dog undergo surgery, but it'll be at least a few years before it's approved for puppy consumption.
