When we house a stray animal, we extract blood which is then given to a veterinary center who test the blood for platelet levels and blood parasites. Upon healthy results, we conduct the sterilization within a couple of days. The dog or cat then has respite in our kennels for a week. This period allows us to ensure that we can provide wound care, change the bandages as and when needed, and take out the stitches. When the week respite is over, and if the animal is healthy after checks, we release them back to their pack. If the animal is sick, however, they will remain in our care and receive medication. After another week, we will check the bloods again and repeat the process as necessary until the animal is healthy enough to return back to their pack.
