Oh boy are you gonna hear some grief on this one! I honestly don't know if you can, but I would say no.

No, I seriously doubt that you can. It sounds a bit cruel for the dog, especially nowadays how many programs for spaying and neutering are out there. In my area, you can get all sorts of discounts to encourage spaying and neutering.

You should NOT do it with any animals. The elastic band cuts off circulation to the testicles. You know how it feels when your foot falls asleep? Then the tissue slowly dies. Then it rots against the body and eventually falls off. America has a history of extreme cruelty to farm animals in the name of farming or "providing food". Things they do to farm animals would get you thrown in jail if it's a dog or cat.

Yes you could, No I wouldn't I have never seen it done to cats. A dog would probably injure itself trying to get the band off, or get the band off at an inopportune time causing bad swelling or infection. Maybe even death

NO! You cannot. That is cruel and can lead to some really nasty infections. Just as an example, when I was working at a large clinic in Houston, some people brought in their Dachshund. Their grandfather, a Chinese immigrant who probably had lived in a very rural community in China and had little experience with companion animals, told them that they could do this to their dog to neuter him. So they wrapped a rubber band around the testicles and left it like that. Well, by the time we saw the dog, the testicles had rotted off (VERY PAINFUL!) and left a gaping wound just under the anus that was infected and fully open. We had to do some serious reconstructive surgery to repair the damage and the dog was in extreme pain by this point. Please just have your pets neutered by a competent veterinarian. There are low cost spay/neuter clinics in every area.And as far as I know, if anybody does this to a cat, it could be considered animal cruelty.

Sure you can...if you're a cruel person who's looking to pay a fine and possibly spend some time in jail on charges of animal cruelty.If I saw anyone do that to any animal, I would probably punch them. i'd be willing to get arrested for that.
