I find it hard do believe that a vet who has done this procedure likely thousands of times has a lower infection or bleeding rate then "do it yourselfers".
People get pain and anesthesia ALL the time for things that don't seem as invasive as this. Having a superficial lesion removed usually involves lidocaine. I watch a circumcision in school, that baby got 4-5cc of lidocaine around the penis area. Women with tears after childbirth also get local anesthesia to the area before they stitch it together. Hell, even HORSES get numbed up for sutures!! These are VERY minor procedures compared to having you scrotum cut open and your testicles ripped out.
This isn't the 1800's. We have medication to prevent pain, make someone comfortable and to prevent medication. Not taking advantage of theses really is down right cruel!!
