All Creatures Animal Welfare League
World Spay Day 2016 was organised and coordinated by the Blantyre SPCA! All Creatures through here representation by Dr Richard Ssuna and Ellen Lambulira, a vet surgeon and vet nurse respectively, were part of the team that participated on the day. The event was organised and conducted at the biggest school in Malawi with over 10,000 pupils called Mbayani Primary School on February 28, 2016. The team comprised in addition to All Creatures; Mission Rabies and Worldwide Veterinary Services.
The team set up in two classes of the school blocks to conduct surgical procedures. All sterilised animals were identified, recorded and marked. Their weights were taken to establish the anaesthetic drugs requirements for all the animals too the nearest gram to avoid risks of death through the procedure. In addition to the painless surgery, all dogs were given post-surgery pain medication and an all-important post-surgical assessment given before any dog was discharged.
Since the rationale of the exercise, in addition to animal welfare, it is also hinged on the public health goal of controlling rabies, all dogs were given rabies a de-warmer and a rabies vaccination. The team of two vets managed 61 dogs at the end of the event. The programme will be led by a the Chief Operations Officer and Mission Rabies Manager Tarryn Roux.
All Creatures is proud to have participated in this year's World Spay Day and looks forward to other future collaborations on this and other activities. We are particularly thankful to Luke Gamble CEO WVS for supporting the activity and appreciating the strength in collaborations.
