Nowadays, catch, neuter and release programs are performed widely. These programs have proven to
be victorious in most places since it is the only method for humanitarianly controlling Alabama dog
populations. In fact it is the most efficient way of managing community dogs. When they are done
employing contemporary methods and materials, it usually does not necessitate more sheltering days
for them to recover back, prior to releasing them back in their respective Montgomery territories. Normally
the animals are released in the same day and would not require further treatment.
Most people think that the same day release proposal is hard to admit, however it is parallel to the progresses in the childbirth. There was a time when the mother was entailed to stay for nearly 5 days in the hospital, whereas now due to the improvement in drugs and medical techniques, it is enough if the mother can spend less than a day. Same day release notions are adopted all over the world.
The Montgomery catch, neuter, release programs actually help to eradicate euthanasia wherein the dogs are killed painless just because they were more aggressive in nature. People who perform these programs will never compromise on the equipment, materials, surgical standards and operating practices. Both male and female animals are sterilized, wherein it is done to control the Alabama population. However there is another reason for doing it to the males and that is to control their aggressive actions all through the mating season since it causes more trouble for human beings.
The females become healthier, and don’t have to get exhausted persistently by giving birth to their litter. The males become calm, composed and tend to fight less. They also become healthy subsequent to having them treated for skin issues and parasites. They are also given rabies vaccinations to lessen the risk of the illness spreading to humans.
To perform these programs, the dogs are first caught using nets and then taken to the clinic. A medical register is first assigned. The weight of the Montgomery dog is checked and then drug package is then made according to their weight. They conduct a physical exam and then premeds are injected when the dog is securely present inside the net. The surgery site is then appropriately prepared. The major concern is the probable dehiscence of the muscle layer in the spay sites of the females. They return back to an atmosphere wherein they might have to conflict to get food. Also, during the surgery, if the female Alabama dog was in estrus, male dogs might still try to mate, after surgery.
This might result in wound breakdown and so to alleviate this particular risk, suture protocol is followed utilizing a 3 cm incision at the maximum. Superglue is used in this process and it just helps to act as a seal to avoid infection up till 72 hours after the surgery. However it does not provide strength or holds the wound. When the Montgomery dogs recover subsequent to surgery, they are then returned to their place of existence or handed over to their owners.
