Oh please, why would anyone undergo plastic surgery for themselves or put their pets through it? Aren't there enough health care costs to deal with already?? THe only reason I can think of to do plastic surgery is if a person or pet had some really disfiguring/life threatening event that only surgery like this could alleviate so they lived a more normal life. Then and only then would I agree.

This, while we have 2 million starving in Somalia. Why not just stack the dollars into a nice pile and light it on fire?

My dogs would be really insulted if I suggested they needed to be sexier or heavens forbid have a shorter nose! And I am pretty sure my husband would drag me to a mental health professional if I was to even suggest that sort of thing.

First of all I have yet to hear of an American vet turn down money and I regularly sign petitions to stop debarking etc. In the UK this is true, no debarking, docking or ear cutting unless for a specific medical procedure. My hubby thought that the nutsicles were actually to be inserted into the male owners as, let's face it, the dog doesn't care. Nose jobs to help breathing is a good idea. A better idea is to improve the breeds to allow them to breathe. Crufts encourages the appalling requirements for pedigree dogs which causes these issues. A German Shepherd will lose the use of its back legs because they must go backwards and not down. A bloodhound (bred and used to follow scents) now has s many folds of skin around its neck that it cannot put its head down without being covered. They now need bowls on legs, ridiculous. Bull dogs, pugs & pekes with squashed faces and bull dog pups can only be delivered by a c-section. Overweight animals can DIET (they do light food for them) and dogs should be exercised (so should the owners).

My happy little dog needs nothing to make her any different, she is as cute & as pretty naturally as she needs to be.

{shaing my head and laughing} I'd do about anything for my dog, but . . $500 couches, $2,000 food bowls, NO. Okay, I can see the medical benefits of facial skin tucks or nose surgery to help him see or breathe better. BUT FAKE TESTICLES????? AND being able to pick between various sizes and textures???? C'MON!!! Only an owner's ego is made larger.

TY Simone Our pets accept us as we are, why can't we just love them as they are.

The first time I heard of neuticles, I thought it was a joke. Who the heck dreamed up that one? And what low-esteemed person would buy them. I don't get anything excessive for my kitties. They get food, shelter and lots of love from us. The extra that could be spent on frivolous items gets sent to shelters, where it can do some good.
