Country veterinarian spays a female piglet (Vietnam)

Piglet is dead-tired after oinking very loudely during the entire surgery! The little criter will hopefully life a happier life before some day becoming bacon and ham.­

Spaying is a common and simple surgical operation to remove or disable a female animal’s ovaries.­

Here the operation takes place in the village's pig market.­ The screaming piglet is attached up-side down on a piece of wood.­ The veterinarian performs a small incision that does not cause any bleeding (he must have done that operation very often and knows exactly where to cut).­ Then he inserts his bare fingers (no gloves, no scrubbing) in the piglet's belly through the incision to find the ovaries.­ Hopefully the animal has a good immune system! The ovaries are extracted, ligatured and put back inside, then the incision is stitched.­ Of course no anesthetic is used, so the piglet was very vocal during the entire operation that lasted no more than 5 minutes.­ After the operation the piglet seemed totally exhausted and suddenly very quite, after oinking very loudly during the whole ordeal.­

See the other photos of the piglet spaying operation.

Some photos were taken at the bull market of Meo-Vac, a tribal region in the North of Vietnam.­

Most photos were taken at a small cattle market I stumbled upon on the road near Mahashunda village in West Bengal (India).­ All the local farmers were there to buy and sell livestock (often young animals).­ Most farmers were Indian Muslims.­
