In order to comply with current standards of The Association of Shelter Veterinarians, a small green tattoo will be applied to the abdomen of male and female cats and female dogs. For male dogs, the tattoo will applied near the scrotum. This is meant to be an indicator of the sterilization status of these animals thus preventing unnecessary surgery later in life.
