More And More Dog Owners Are Getting Plastic Surgery For Their Pets
Dog owners are visiting animal hospitals to see how they can make their pets “more pleasing to the eye”.

Dogs are put through eye enhancement surgery, cutting the tail, raising their ears, botox, wrinkle-removing procedures, double eyelid surgery, and more.
Some procedures involve removing the fat from the legs and even making their stomach lines “prettier”.
The procedures are reported to be starting from as low as $60 to thousands of dollars.
What’s worse, the medical professionals are advocating the cosmetic practice.
A dog owner named Miss Lim visited the vet with her five-month-old puppy to get vaccinations when the veterinarian asked if she wanted her dog to receive cosmetic surgery.
“After looking at his face closely, the veterinarian pointed out the gap between her mouth and asked,’Isn’t that a little uncomfortable to see from a cosmetic perspective?‘”
— Miss Lim
What began as a procedure to help dogs’ medical problems, many owners are now receiving them for vain reasons.

The veterinarian named Yoon Sin Geun claimed that it is “the owner’s right for wanting to make their pets pretty and it is too much to criticize procedures that are proven to be safe.“
In response, animal rights activists countered that “it is animal abuse to have procedures done on animals that can’t voice their opinions.“
Netizens have taken to multiple community sites to voice their opposition against the procedures.
