IFAW’s field manual of veterinary standards: Dog and cat sterilisation

IFAW’s sterilisation field manual outlines basic standards for the surgical, anesthetic and nursing procedures pertaining to sterilization (spay and neuter) of cats and dogs. It is written as a guide for those providing training to veterinarians working in the suboptimal conditions common to field projects, whilst maintaining acceptable standards of care.

Some documents here are written by individual members of the lCAM Coalition and reflect the views of those individual members and not necessarily of the entire Coalition.
