Purely cosmetic

Vet’s against ear cropping and tail docking.

“It’s obviously a painful procedure and if there is no medical reason for it, why would we do it?” says Langelier, whose Island Veterinary Hospital is among all but one clinic on Vancouver Island that won’t crop ears or dock tails of puppies for purely cosmetic reasons.

“More and more veterinarians, especially the newer vets, are opposed to it,” says Langelier. “They take issue with inflicting pain for appearance.”
