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 inventor Gregg Miller.
“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.”
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, MO 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
eighteen year journey into establishing the unknown patented procedure
to veterinarians and pet owners around the World.
Today – Over 500,000 ‘Neuticled‘ Pets Worldwide…
Eighteen years later -over 500,000 canines, felines, equine, bulls and other animals have been ‘Neuticled‘
