Promoting responsible pet ownership and reduced pet populations through Spays and Neuters.

Spay 11

In honouring the 2019 World Spay Day, yesterday the 26th of February 2019 LSPCA offered free pet sterilization service in Dzenza-Lilongwe as one way of curbing the problem of dog overpopulation in the area.

World Spay Day comes every last Tuesday of February each year basically to encourage individuals to bring their pets to get them spayed and neutered.

Spaying /neutering is a surgical procedure done on animals to remove female and male reproductive organs preventing these animals from having young ones.

Dogs breeding unconditionally end up having unwanted litters which in turn end up being stray dogs possibly being exposed to rabies and exposing other animals to rabies as well.

Without spay and neuter initiatives, homeless animals are often euthanized, killed, neglected or die of diseases or injuries. Sterilization is critical for management of overpopulation and related disease control concerns.

In just a space of 5 hours, our team of three Vets managed to spay and neuter 79 dogs, vaccinated 62 dogs against rabies, and provided primary health care to some dogs identified with health problems.

According to Dr Tinotenda Razemba, veterinary manager for LSPCA said “when effectively delivered and combined with vaccination, spay/neuter provides humane and effective way to reduce the number of animals living on the streets, and improves the health of those remaining.”

The implementation of sustainable spay and neuter programs is the most effective method of addressing canine and feline populations that have exceeded the capacity of the local community to properly care for them.
