Recently, I have had a heap of people coming to me (as a vet) asking me if I would dock puppies tails. My ‘normal’ trade is farm animals, but I regularly see gun dogs on farms and have docked litters.
The reason is one or a combination of: their old boy vet who usually does it is in isolation or retired and/or their local vets simply will no do it.
Is anyone else having these issues? Do vets need more awareness of the pitfalls of beating breeds running through brush with full length tails?
I’m interested to know your thoughts!
