​如何知道動物已絕育?How to tell if the animal is desexed?

請留意耳尖是否剪平或剪成 V 字,這是絕育記認.

如有人飼養或餵飼,可向他們直接了解.

亦可留意動物6個月至一年內是否有發情/懷孕等

Check if ear-clipped marking either in a straight line or V sharp.  That is a virtual marking for desexed animals.

Or ask the keepers/feeders directly.

You may also observe in the next 6 to 12 months to check if the females are still having heat cycles.
