Countless pets each year are subjected to devocalization, a process in which the vocal cords are cut so that they can no longer bark or meow. Not only do these animals lose their ability to communicate, devocalization can cause life-long health problems.

Anyone that would do this to an animal should have it done to them.

signed and noted - this is just so cruel - barking is a dog's only voice - there are very few vets in Cape Town that will do this, thank God.

Noted and signed. Thanks Cal. Getting through to pet owners that there is a better way, ie: training you and your dog, is the best way to stop this mutilation.

How can owners decide to do that to their dogs without even trying to train them? I just can't understand, it's horrible.

I have never heard of this before - it's totally inhumane - just the same as removing claws from a cat. Terrible. I have signed and shared.

S & N! Any vet that would do this, needs his throat slit along with the owner who allows this nonsense to happen!

A yappy dog drives me nuts. But not nuts enough to think their vocal cords should be cut. Better training solves this problem, not horrid torture.
