Stray Kerala Dogs Face Keyhole Surgery to Control Birth Rate

The killing of stray dogs in Kerala, has prompted the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) and the Cochin Corporation to promote Animal Birth Control (ABC) by starting a keyhole surgery drive for stray dogs to control their reproductive ability.

M.K. Sethumadhavan, District Secretary of the SPCA, said it is the best way to control the birth rate of stray dogs, adding that In few years the menace will be over in the cities of Kerala.

The drive was started here recently by SPCA officials and veterinary doctors at the Mattancherry Veterinary Hospital by conducting keyhole surgeries on eleven stray dogs - seven female and four male.

The dogs are first given vitamins vaccinations and devorming medicines a day before the operation. By applying local anaesthesia, the surgery is performed. This has no side effect on the dogs which are released as soon as it recovers, said Jaison George, the person in-charge of the ABC programme.

In keyhole surgery, male dogs and bitches ed by removing the testicles and uterus respectively.

A good doctor can perform upto ten surgeries a day. Doctors undertaking such surgeries are provided with sterilized operation kits and syringe sets.

After the operation and the post recovery period, the dogs are released at the place from where they were caught. Dogs are kept in cells for a day before surgery and three days after surgery.

The Kochi unit of the Society for Prevention of Cruelties to Animals (SPCA) is spreading this message among the masses even a year after its formal launch.

The main aim of the programme is to give hands on training to local vets.

The SPCA has been provided with a fund of rupees 445/- for each dog, which includes medicine, surgery equipment, vaccinations and other expenses.

For the first phase, a financial assistance for 500 dogs is provided to the SPCA. It has targeted 1000 keyhole surgeries in the coming days.

The Cochin Corporation is the first in the state to undertake this programme.

According to a study done in Hyderabad and other places, this is the best way to control the birth of dogs.
