Our first clinic for 2014 was held in Banos. All the volunteers arrived at 8am to find a line of waiting dogs and cats.
Here is how the clinic of volunteers is set up:
Station 1 is outside where the owners and animals information is taken
Station 2 is Pre-op: 2 people giving the initital sedation and IV
Station 3 is the surgery where we had 2 Vets working
Station 4 is Post-op #1: this is where the animal is monitored until it starts to wake up
Station 5 is Post op #2: this is where the animal received continued monitoring until it is release. This is also where they receive the slow release antibiotic injection and the prescriptions are written. This time they all received Vitamin B injections, as well.
Station 6 is where the instruments are washed and prepared for the sterilizer
A total of 62 dogs and cats were helped this past week end. There were 60 females and 2 males this time. 60 females not producing 2 litter per year…Wow
We have another clinic scheduled in Banos for February 8 and 9.
These clinics are held in cooperation with Fundacion ARCA…they supply all the equipment and supplies for these clinics.
