Cosmetic surgery for dogs – the new craze amongst wives of Russian Oligarchs
10 Types of popular unnecessary plastic surgery include:
1. Feline De-Clawing
What happens if Kitty starts scratching at your $45,000 hand bag?
Forget the time and effort required to train kitty, just take your feline friend down to your friendly cosmetic surgeon.
Feline de-clawing has sometimes been aptly named a “series of amputations.” Every last bone on your feline friends claw toes are removed (including the nerves, muscles and tendons.)
It might hurt but now your furry friend can cause no more damage to your designer hand bags.
2. Testicular Implants
Now an oligarchs guard dog can be neutered without the inevitable drop in macho image due to his lack of cojones.
Neuticles are implanted during the neutering operation and look exactly like the real thing.
“He licks them like they’re real, and I can tell he would rather have them than nothing,” says Ryan.
At $400 a pair these plastic testicles don’t come cheap.
3. Canine Tail Docking
In order to improve the beauty of some dogs, the end of their tail is chopped off. Most countries have now decided to ban tail docking but it is still legal in the oligarch homeland of Russia.
4. Canine Nose Job:
Surgery is at hand if your Bulldog is getting bullied about his big nose or more importantly is having congenital breathing problems. Nose jobs help can help your bulldog breath more clearly and it may even help their self esteem.
5. Doggy Breast Reduction.
Some Bitches can have such floppy bosom following pregnancy that reduction via surgery is the only option. I am still wondering if doggy breast enlargement exists but I don’t fancy entering the dark world of bestiality.
6. Ear Straightening
Whilst not a particularly common problem in humans, the problem of ear dropping affects dogs worldwide. Dr Edgard Brito was the first plastic surgeon to successfully complete this treatment.
His patient Bruto (see picture) had one ear that drooped which meant the end of his show dog career. By injecting Bruto’s ear with Restylane (used in humans for wrinkle removal), Dr Brito was able to restore Bruto’s ear to its non-droopy state.
7. Dog Face Lift
There are some cases of cosmetic surgery for dogs that are not just to improve appearance. Due to intense breeding, some breeds such as bulldogs have so many skin folds that it can lead to infection and discomfort.
Most cosmetic skin fold surgery is around the eyes, tails, lips and vaginal area.
8. Eye Replacement
If Bruno loses his eye don’t settle for a doggy eye patch. For $2000 you could get your pooch a Terminator eye that would send shiver down the spine of would be intruders
9.Removing Red Panties
Did Bruno just eat a pair of red panties? Don’t despair help is at hand.
Dr Michael Pavletic of Boston Angell Animal Medical Shelter told reporters that he recently extracted the pair of red knickers from the a dogs abdomen (the panties did not belong to the owner.)
10. Doggy Braces
Normally if your dog cracks his teeth, you just get them removed. With money no object, the option of dog braces is no longer ludicrous.
I wonder if a savage Rottweiler with lime green braces would still strike fear into would-be intruders?
