Ears Stand Corrected: Cosmetic Surgery and Pets

Are you irritated by your dog's drooping ears or your kitty's tail which is capable of sweaping off a coffee 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 cosmetic 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 cosmetic surgeries enhance the overall quality of a pet's life while others could possibly state that these procedures are mean-spirited, ego driven and more for the benefit of the pet owners than for the pets well being.

Cosmetic surgery for pets is not at all a recent idea. In the late 1800's and the early twentieth century cosmetic surgery or alteration was a normal practice, most especially in the cat show world.

Such techniques as tail bobbing and ear reducing to produce the deceptive image of another breed were practices used regularly.

And there are other cosmetic procedures for pets that sound like procedures for people. We are not the only creatures who can get a tummy tuck. This is done especially for health purposes, as some animal breeds are indeed more vulnerable to infection and so forth. Your pet could even have liposuction done. And that is not nearly the end of it. There is also the changing 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 covered over! She had to rid the dog's face of its unpleasing folds and in the end the eyes looked around two times as big as before 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 changing the natural style.

Some animal advocates say there is a morality issue doing this to pets who did not request it done and who did not concur with it(or the actual pain that goes along with it) just to look a certain way. It is really somewhat surprising all the other cosmetic surgery procedures that are done on a regular.
