Professional Tail Docking Service
Reasons For Tail Docking
Historically speaking, tail docking procedures were performed on working dogs as people believed that their long and bushy tails would be prone to injuries in a dangerous working environment. Gundog breeds, for instance, tend to have torn and bleeding tails as they hunt for game through heavy vegetation and thick brambles.
Tail docking is generally performed shortly after birth without anaesthesia, when the puppy’s nervous system is not yet fully developed. As a result, the puppy feels little to no pain, and there are no lasting negative health issues. Anaesthesia is not required at this point as this could be life-threatening for the young puppy.
That aside, there are some pet owners who feel their pet needs a makeover. You may have heard of or seen some of the examples before: hair-dying, nail-painting, and yes, tail docking.
Tail Dock Only When Necessary
This kind of practice is even extended to show dogs. Parties who support tail docking procedure done on show dogs claimed it is to maintain kennel club breed standards. According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the practice of tail docking is “integral to defining and preserving breed character and/or enhancing good health.”
However tail docking is highly restricted or banned in many countries, including across Europe, Australia, Iceland, Israel, Norway, South Africa and Switzerland. Likewise, Singapore strongly discourages pet owners from docking the tails of their pets for purely cosmetic purposes.
However when injuries or accidents affect your beloved pet’s health or its welfare, then tail docking may be a necessity.
