Just came across this, and thought this was pretty interesting. They are testing this on mice by giving them an injection for birth control. One injection and done! What a boon this would be for all the wild cats out there. Be even greater for our own pets!

Knowing how sensitive cocker's immune systems are, I wouldn't be comfortable injecting any virus into a cocker spaniel. It does sound like it could have some promising uses, though.
