The Barbaric Procedure Your Dog Should Never Have to Endure

Story at-a-glance

The New York State Assembly recently approved legislation that would outlaw “convenience” devocalization (“debarking”) procedures on dogs and cats. The bill would make such procedures a class B misdemeanor, and impose jail time or fines on violators

Only three other US states, Massachusetts, Maryland, and New Jersey, have passed similar laws

Devocalization is a surgery that involves cutting or removing an animal’s vocal cords. It is done primarily on dogs, and can cause irreversible health problems, including chronic coughing, gagging, and breathing difficulties

Excessive vocalization can be effectively managed by addressing the root cause and making appropriate environmental and lifestyle changes

"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog." Edward Hoagland
"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."

It really is disgusting, the things vets will do for money. I hope it passes the senate too.

And I hope our Declaw bill gets through this year, too.
