Ear-Cropping and Tail-Docking
Anonymous
5 years ago

To give certain breeds so-called "desirable" traits, unscrupulous veterinarians perform cruel, disfiguring surgeries that cause dogs great suffering.

Dogs usually have their ears cropped when they are just 8 to 12 weeks old. At this stage in their development, the trauma of the procedure can have a strong psychological impact on the maturing pup. The process of taping and retaping a pup's ears to force them to stand erect after they have been cropped can be agonizing for the dog.

Puppies are normally just a few days old when their tails are docked. They are generally not even given anesthetics to numb the pain. Compassionate veterinarians object to the arbitrary removal of body parts used for communication, balance, and expression. Dogs "talk" to their human companions and other dogs using their ears and tails.

Performing medically unnecessary procedures that simply perpetuate the image of dogs as fashion accessories is outrageous.

Why? What is more why do vets agree to do it? What sort of person wants more than a dog's loyalty and love? Sick people out there.

Tudor - 2 hours ago - yousign.org

A shocking plan by Simon Coveney, Ireland's minister of Agriculture, reveals that hunters and terriermen will be allowed to dock the dogs' tails. Without pain relief, tail docking is a very cruel procedure, and dogs are bound to suffer immensely!

Cropping an animals ears is a cosmetic procedure that should always be done by a licensed vet under anesthesia. It should never be done in someones home as they hold their dog down and do it.

No one should be doing this including vets. Mutilating animals is not part of their job description.

I would like to rip the ears off people who think this is  the right way to treat a dog.

Ear-cropping and tail-docking
2 years ago

People are so unbelievable. This is forbidden here in Germany so what do People do with their "pets"? They take them across the border to get it done there, even though they risk being caught and fined coming back across. I don't know what it is about humans that they can never accept nature as a wonderful gift but always have to take a Hand in making things less beautiful. Probably hoping this will detract from their own short-comings.

Illegalize Dangerous and Cruel Practice of Dog ‘Ear Cropping’

Cropping a dog’s ears at home may cause infection, excessive bleeding, and sometimes even death. Dog owners should not be allowed to perform this precarious procedure themselves. Please sign this petition to ask President Obama to make this act illegal.

Already did all these. Thanks for sharing. The people that do this to their animals need to have some part of their body clipped or docked so they can feel the pain that they cause.

Signed everything. Can't understand why so many People find mutilated Dogs more attractive than naturally beautiful ones. Suppose it's about the same as the women who turn they lips into tyre tubes and think it Looks good. But if they want to mutilate themselves, it's their choice. The poor dog doesn't get a say.
