Ok not to beat a dead horse but I just wanted to throw in something here. I am not for it or against it. What I am against is the cruel way most people do it. The poor puppy I rescued from a dump has a rubber band or string tied around her tail until it fell off. Not only did she live with that pain for weeks but since she was thrown in a dumpster it was a little infected, its crooked to boot and my poor baby was in pain for god knows how long! All I am saying and this is not directed at the members on here but maybe some new ones on the board, PLEASE GO TO A RESPECTABLE VET FOR ANY PROCEDURE!
