Our dogs deserve the same protections we would expect for ourselves. Since there are irresponsible pet owners out there, this legislation is necessary to keep the animals safe.

I think it's great that more & more people are standing up for animal rights, it's long overdue!

I think it's a wonderful idea as I have recently had a female Pitbull puppy follow me up my driveway. As I checked the puppy over I realized her ears had been docked. They did a horrible job and my vet even said more than likely they did it WITHOUT anesthesia. That really pissed me off. So KUDOS to Pennsylvania. The need to pass that law nationwide now.

This is a wondeful idea as I recently had a Pitbull puppy follow me up my driveway. The pup onviously had her ears docked, by her owners, WITHOUT any kind of anesthesia and they did a HORRIFIC job. Her ears looked terrible. I think it's cruel for normal joes to do their ears themselves as they generally DON'T use anesthesia. KUDOS!

ANY alteration on an animal just for cosmetic reasons should be outlawed! Why would anyone want to torture their pet like that!?

I think that this is a good idea to only let vets do this, but this bill would still let someone dock ears or tails on pups under five days which is usually when people do it. I think that they should outline the rules stating that only vets are allowed to dock, no matter what age the pup is.

Bad idea. First of all I think it should be illegal in this country, like it is in other civilized countries, to mutilate dogs or horses for our aesthetic preferences. Secondly, if it is allowed I see nothing wrong with people doing it themselves. What's next? Will we not be allowed to treat our own animals? What about farmers and their stock? Dehorning, docking, shearing, etc.?

What about dogs rescued from the pound? How will you prove they were done by a vet? Will these owners be penalized?

What sort of gain is there in cropping or docking ears and tails? I'm curious to know.

I think this great. I know that if something is wrong with me or I want to get something down to me, I want a professional doing it. Not someone from there back yard.

Get the bill rolling. I have seen a home ear crop job on a puppy. It wasn't a pretty sight.
