Feature of Neutered / Spayed Animal

SOS neutered / spayed animals are tattooed an “S” on the internal side of ear flap (distal pinna).

This ear mark is done to visibly identify that feral animals have been neutered / spayed as part of a population management programme.

This procedure is carried out while the animal is under anaesthesia for the neuter / spay operation.

Identifying sterilized animals, particularly females, can be very difficult without a visible indictor (such as tattooed “S”, ear notched, etc), and unnecessary repeat surgery is both a waste of resources and traumatic for the animals.

Thank you very much.
