Sterilization programs for dogs and cats are crucial in controlling their population, reducing stray animals, and promoting responsible ownership. However, without proper identification methods, tracking which animals have already been sterilized can be difficult. It is essential to emphasize the importance of identification techniques used by sterilization programs for dogs and cats.
Fundagrat uses identification techniques in accordance with the Animal Welfare law.
Benefits of Identification:
1. Avoid Unnecessary Surgeries:
By identifying sterilized animals, Fundagrat ensures that no animal undergoes multiple unnecessary surgeries. This avoids additional stress on these animals and minimizes any potential complications associated with repeated surgeries.
2. Conservation of Resources:
Identification techniques help conserve valuable resources used during sterilization procedures. By accurately determining which animals have already been modified, precious supplies such as anesthetic medications, surgical instruments, and sutures can be saved for other unsterilized animals in need.
3. Effective Population Control:
Identifying cats and dogs that have undergone surgery indicates they have already received sterilization treatment. This is particularly crucial as feral cat colonies often pose challenges in capturing them again due to their elusive nature. The ability to identify these previously modified cats prevents unnecessary capture attempts or repeated surgeries if they are mistakenly caught again.
