So I saw someone using Conntraceptol (a birth control mouse food) with pet mice to be able to house mating pairs together after breeding. It seemed like a nice alternative to neutering and less dangerous. Has anyone tried this stuff? I was certainly curious about it.

Was it Creek Valley Critters? If so I trust that person a lot. Also I'm going to start using contraceptol as a pest control because it seems a great idea. If you're okay trying things out I'd definitely try it. It would be an awesome thing for males so they can be housed with females without being neutured

I also have a few spiders chilling in my house but I haven't named them so I don't quite consider them pets, rather roommates. Y'know?

If you do want to try it, be sure to do it with two mice that are genetically compatible so you don’t end up with malformed pups, meaning do this with ethically bred mice. I would definitely discuss this with an ethical breeder before buying/attempting.

Oh this is a really interesting topic, I've never thought of using contraceptol before in domestic mice. If anyone does use this with success be sure to keep us up to date, if it works well without any issues associated I might be interested in using it for future mice.
