Florence Morning News (Newspaper) - September 2, 1973, Florence, South Carolina, september 2, 1972 Florence morning news you and your pets cose against ear trimming Good Ivy Worth . A few Days ago. Received a letter from a Pel owner in new Jersey. She proceeded to give me a Prelly gone going Over because veterinarians Par tic palc in ear trimming in cer Tain Breeds of dogs. She told of recently seeing a Boxer Pup whose ears were bleeding profusely As a result of an ear trim a few Days before. In the end she posed the question How can the veterinary profession talk Abnot and promote humane treatment for animals and then participate in the most pain provoking procedure Long before the turn of the last Century dog fanciers were beginning to set standards for certain Breeds and Many of i desc standards involved Eer lain cosmetic procedures which would greatly change the appearance. Mainly this involved of the ears and tails but there wore other activities such As removing Dew claws and others. This has been handed Down through Lime until now in this country there Are sonic Thirleen Breeds of dogs thai Are required to have Irrin mid cars if they Are to he entered in dog shows. The Case against ear t in Ming is gaining momentum in other countries. I read recently where veterinarians in Canada requested the Canadian Ken till club to re Access their standards and bring an end to unnecessary cosmetic surgery. L they said much of this surgery i could not be considered is san Lial to Good health. Those Breed fanciers and veterinarians thai have gained lame in trimming ears will r argue that there is nothing inhumane about this practice. They contend that they take an animal who otherwise would grow into a grotesque appearing creature and transform him into a proud Beautiful animal who will always hold its head High. If you be Ever seen a grown lion or with Long ears and a full Tail. I d say you d have to agree. Also we sometimes Point out that a dog with trimmed ears never suffers from inner ear problems hut ibis i think May to taking Hie thing a Little Loo far. This question has been debated Many times before and i must admit there Are Points for and against the procedure. Bui i m Quick to admit Hal never looked Forward Wilh anticipation to a single Case. Perhaps it was not for the Sake of humaneness. It was rather the dread the cars will not land properly. And be compatible with the rest of the head when the dog entered a show. 1 was always amused to hear certain Breed fanciers expound on the proneness of a certain individual in rimming ears. The veterinary surgeon actually has Little to do Wilh whether or not the ears stand following trimming. This is almost totally dependent on hereditary characteristics and the after care the Dof receives following rimming. Bui make no mistake in most car trims. The reputation of the veterinarian is Al slake in every single Case. He is classed As a great surgeon when the cars land and As one who should never pick up another Scalpel when they Flop. But Back to the question of the humane aspect. While i m Clim Bing the Fence let me Point Oul that my land is this right or wrong if ears Are to be trim med hey should be done under the Complete anaesthesia required of any general surgery and they should be confined and treated until completely healed. And this surgery heals rather slowly. If a pal incl is to be handled like the one described by the new Jersey writer Hen i d have to agree his is grossly inhumane and should be prohibited.
