Maybe some of them are, but not where mutilation of animals are concerned, I can't think of any health benefits of debarking or docking, but that is a whole 'nother debate, and we all have our views on it.
My views are contradictory I know, I admit that but..
Horse tail docking no, not needed.
Dog Tail docking not needed, but then there are breeds, like dobies, who look better docked.
Ear trimming, well although I love the look of a cropped Dobie I would never have one done, not know I know what is involved.
De clawing a cat or debarking a dog, well just what benefit does an animal gain from that I wonder?
