Mazatlan, Sinaloa. – The Department of Ecology and Environment of the Municipal Government will carry out the sterilization campaign in the community of El Quelite this Friday so that people can bring their pets to carry out this procedure.

Yesenia Guadalupe López Macías, Coordinator of the Center for Animal Welfare and Control (CEBICA) said that it is important to carry out this activity in rural areas, because it not only increases the life expectancy of pets but also helps control the overpopulation of dogs and cats, therefore, will seek to replicate this project in other towns.

He invited people who have pets, and who is going to carry out this procedure, to come early to the place since space is limited.

“The procedure is quick to recover, it helps control sexual anxiety… they also obtain hygiene in your home, decrease urine odors, decrease the possibility of abuse, and the pet also becomes a little more homely,” he explained.

López Macías added that the personnel in charge of the animal sterilization procedure will be at the facilities of the Autonomous University, starting at 9:00 a.m. offering the service.

The requirements for sterilization are as follows:

1.- Your pet must fast for 12 hours from solids and 8 from liquids. Take care that they do not eat anything at all.

2.- Bring them clean, without fleas or ticks.

3.- Age: Cats from 4 months, dogs from 6 months. In the case of male dogs they must have both testicles descended.

6.- No dogs or cats that have just given birth or are nursing.

7.- No dogs with obesity or very low weight. Dogs weighing less than 20 kilograms.
