Two Days, Ten Sterilizations


Yesterday we sterilized the six puppies that were caught on Wednesday. The four females were spayed first and then the two males were neutered. After grabbing a large breakfast in the market we were able to begin operating at 10am, finishing at 3pm.

Unable to fully sterilize the equipment between each surgery, we instead give the instruments as thorough a clean as possible with alcohol between each dog. It is far from ideal, but unfortunately in the basic conditions that we are working with there is little alternative.

Today, we concentrated on adult spays, operating on the two adults from yesterday’s pack of puppies and two adult females that we caught in the same area. All of the operations went very smoothly. This is a relief as much as it is a surprise. The last sterilization project that the sanctuary ran encountered two pyometra cases for every one ‘normal’ street dog that they operated on.
