Plastic Surgery for Pets Getting More Popular

People are reportedly getting more plastic surgery…for their pets.

The Huffington Post reports that cosmetic surgery for pets is gaining in popularity, including nose jobs and eyelifts. Oh, and of course Neuticles, the silicone testicle implants that dog owners are getting for their neutered canines.

Many people are opposed to this type of procedure for pets. One dog owner, Craig Swinson, told ABC News, “This type of procedure is really only for one thing: To promote the ego of the owners.” It was discovered that his rescue dog Percy had been given Neuticles while Percy was undergoing surgery to be neutered. ASPCA spokesman, Bret Hopman, also spoke out against unnecessary surgeries. He told Huffington Post, “The ASPCA is opposed to elective surgeries that are undertaken solely to conform to breed standards, including cropping ears and docking tails.”

Although, some veterinarians say that there are plastic surgery procedures that can be done to improve the animal’s health or quality of life. The Daily Mail reports one case in which a Shar-Pei’s wrinkles were hanging into his eyes, and a face lift has allowed him to see. Surgery is also done to improve breathing problems, or weight problems. Some pet owners are now getting liposuction for their overweight pets, although veterinarians typically recommend weight management pet food, exercise, or even medication instead of surgery for overweight dogs and cats.
