Believe it or not, dog owners in South Korea are now getting plastic surgery for their dogs.
According to one of South Korea’s biggest newspapers, Chosun Ilbo, one unnamed veterinarian said,
“Plastic surgery for pets in the past were for medical reasons, but the result also brought better-looking dogs, so there is a growing customer base getting a plastic surgery for cosmetic reasons on their dogs.”
Most procedures at this time include plastic surgery, however popularity is growing in tail shortening to make the animal cutesy and ear trimming to make them pointier, as well as procedures humans get like straightening wrinkles, double eyelid surgery, removing stomach stretch marks, removing fat, and even botox…
Dr. Yoon, told Chosun Ilbo that these procedures are “medically safe” and that it was “the owner’s right” to surgically ‘improve’ their pet’s appearance.
Do you agree?
You are more than likely (I hope!) feeling appalled with disagreement, just like many South Koreans. The Korean veterinarian magazine, Daily Vet, reported that 63 percent of pet owners when asked, believed cosmetic surgery for dogs should be banned. A Korean animal rights group called the unnecessary procedures “animal abuse.”
