    I have a rottie with a beautiful tail and she has no problem with her tail during her schutzhund training!! Was your dog a working dog???
    I walk with a friend who has a an imported rottie from New Zealand with a docked tail. He has had a nightmare time having a young Rottie with a docked tail. We get abused when walking them together, no vet will treat the dog and the RSPCA have been called by many people and visited him. He would never buy a dog from New Zealand again.

    You can't possibly compare nuetering/speying to tail docking!
    You desex an animal to prevent unwanted pregnancies and eliminate the risk of some cancers.
    Did you not say you are a vet nurse!? Why am I even having this discussion with you!!?

    What a ridiculous comment! Not making your argument any stronger with silly come backs like that.

    Fedra,

    There are so many questions you have asked. I am really sorry but I do not have time to answer them. May I suggest you to try the same web site from where you copied and pasted these questions into the forum.

    Alternatively, try Wikipedia it is an excellent educational web site. Good luck.

    Obviously there are so many misinformed people who are supporting the animal castration & hysterectomy but are against the tail docking because – “ it is cruelty to animals”, “the animal can not give consent” “ it is painful” “ it is not ethical” etc.

    You have to agree that dog castration & hysterectomy is widely accepted and politically correct procedure because it lessens the burden to RSPCA and other Government organizations who are dealing with the unwanted animals. There is another group of people with vested interests (vets & vet nurses & breeders ) supporting this view for various reasons. It is a fairly expensive procedure. (~ $500) and reducing the number of purebreed puppies on the market will inevitably increase the price of certain breed. Very smart indeed.

    I am not going to discuss advantages or disadvantages of sterilisation or subsequent dog obesity, diabetes, arthritis, cancer and how this will ultimately generate more income for vets through more frequent visits and treatments. There is also a mounting evidence that hysterectomy could reduce your pet's lifespan by over 30% !

    Canine Hysterectomies May Decrease Life Expectancy | Pet and Animal News | PetPeoplesPlace.com

    As someone mentioned previously on this forum there are many people in our society that should not be allowed to have kids but this does not give us right to castrate or sterilize these people without their informed consent. I know that some Governments would like this idea about involuntary sterilisation because it will reduce the number of delinquents & unwanted offspring in Juvenile Justice correctional centres or psychiatric hospitals. It is cost effective procedure however this will be impossible to implement due to broader ethical issues.

    If you think about ethics in wider context you have to agree that testicle or tail removal without medical reason is CRUELTY to poor animals. Just use your brain and simple logic. Don’t let other people think or vote for you.

    After reading all these comment I decided to buy a “proper” dog, the one with the tail and the balls.
    No unauthorised organ removals please.

    Does anyone else think this is the same sick person who didn't want animals desexed because he liked to have sex with them? I really miss DA.

    I was thinking the same thing Hy, sounds just like him. Seems more interested in the desexing debate than his tail docking poll.

    Oh I forgot to mention that I am straight and I prefer the blonde, long-legged chicks with the big and firm….eyes…….




    I am sure that she will support my argument to keep this beauty – as it is, uncut and NATURAL

    I see you edited your disgusting post attacking another member. Good.

    We had a male member here who was indeed up on those charges you blithly accused her of. He was advocating keeping dogs entire. We then found out why when another astute member found a news link.
