Ears stand corrected: decorative surgery and pets - pets


Are you aggravated by your dog's limp ears or your kitty's tail which is adept of sweaping off a brunette table in a mere second? Is your puppy being too loud and your Calico scratching a bit too much? In our society, there are so many aesthetic procedures that have the capability of transforming our pets into the best citizens of their kind, into members of other breeds or into denizens of imaginary breeds.

Some could even say that these decorative surgeries enhance the complete condition of a pet's life while others could maybe state that these procedures are mean-spirited, ego motivated and more for the allowance of the pet owners than for the pets well being.

Cosmetic surgery for pets is not at all a fresh idea. In the late 1800's and the early twentieth century aesthetic surgery or alteration was a customary practice, most chiefly in the cat show world.

Such techniques as tail bobbing and ear falling to construct the deceiving image of a further breed were practices used regularly.

And there are other beauty procedures for pets that sound like procedures for people. We are not the only creatures who can get a tummy tuck. This is done in particular for shape purposes, as some brute breeds are definitely more vulnerable to infection and so forth. Your pet could even have liposuction done. And that is not all but the end of it. There is also the altering of eyelids to alter eye shape and face lifts which alter the pet's face. And for show pets there are prosthetic testicles for dogs as well as laser depilation for the looks of "hairless" cats.

Holistic Vet Dr. Jane Bicks has performed her share of these surgeries. At one time she gave a face lift to a dog who had facial folds so pronounced his eyes were part sheltered over! She had to rid the dog's face of its unpleasing folds and in the end the eyes looked about two times as big as ahead of the procedure.

She also did a nose job on her horse, a horse whom that she had rescued and who had a mangled nose. She replaced the nose and stitched it back on while not altering the biological style.

Some bodily advocates say there is a morality issue doing this to pets who did not ask for it done and who did not concur with it(or the authentic pain that goes along with it) just to look a a variety of way. It is certainly a bit amazing all the other aesthetic surgery procedures that are done on a regular. For further in a row about Pet issues and food visit The Pet Food Zone and find out more.
