Neuticles® Inventor Gregg A. Miller
It All Started with a Bloodhound Named Buck!
Buck the Bloodhound led a charmed life. You see, without Buck - the idea of Neuticles would never have been thought of by owner Gregg A. Miller of Oak Grove, MO.
"Buck was seven months old- ornery as they came," said Miller, "Well- the day came when I had to consider neutering- and was really surprised when it was discovered the testicles are permanently removed when the pet is neutered- Buck would no longer be Buck!"
Deeply concerned, Miller asked his Missouri veterinarian Dr. R.D. Holder of Independence if implants were available so Buck could look the same. "I've been a veterinarian for 45 years and its never been thought of," Dr. Holder remarked, "It sounds like a very good idea," he said.
Buck was neutered the 'old way' back in 1993- but the concern suffered by Miller over his bloodhound named Buck would soon change veterinary history forever.
Two Years In Development...
Miller assembled a team of veterinarians which began development of the surgical procedure and Neuticles product line- dubbed the CTI (Canine Testicular Implantation) Project. The cost exceeded one-half million dollars for molding of parts, research, legal and medical investigations. On December 20, 1995 the first commercially "Neuticled" canine was performed on a nine month old Rottweiler named Max- owned by Independence, Missouri Police Officer Mike Pyle.
Massive World Wide Publicity Followed...
The neutering of Max in 1995 was recognized by Parade Magazine as a top 10 news event of the year- Gregg Miller and his newly formed company CTI (Canine Testicular Implant) Corporation began an incredible thirteen year journey into establishing the unknown patented procedure to veterinarians and pet owners around the World.
Today - Over 250,000 'Neuticled' Pets Worldwide...
Thirteen years later -over 250,000 canines, felines, equine and bulls have been 'Neuticled' Worldwide, by over 25,000 veterinary hospitals and clinics in all 50 states and 49 countries -without a single reported complication. Neuticles and the testicular implant procedure has proven to be a safe, practical and inexpensive option when neutering. Endorsed by hundreds of humane societies Worldwide- praised as a solid solution to the pet over population crisis- Neuticles promises to be as common as the traditional method of altering is today. And, it all started with a bloodhound named Buck.
