How to recognize a stray cat that has been neutered

March 5th 2015


For the “Journée nationale de la stérilisation animale au Québec”, our team has sterilised stray cats from the Lac des Pins campground, in St-Antoine-Abbé. During the surgery of stray cats, veterinarians use two methods to identify that the cats have been neutered. The first one consists of ear-tipping of the left ear. The second method consists of using green tattoo ink on the surgical incisions of the females. These methods are commonly used in Trap-neuter-return programs.
