Should I cut off this cats tail? I don’t have money for a vet. — 3 Comments

  1. Keepers of livestock often castrate and de-horn their own cattle and goats. While it may be done outside there are proper methods to reduce infection. All of my colts were gelded at home in the corral without incident by a vet. Lets not imply that farmers and ranchers are unclean in animal care and welfare and most practice good animal husbandry. you only hear about the louses because they get in trouble.
    As to the person who owns cats when their dog is cat killer please re-home the cats or the dog and the cat should be taken to the local humane society where they may offer some help. Even if it’s hanging on by a piece of skin bone has been broken and dog slobber entered the wound. It’s a bite and needs tending.

  2. Farmers and ranchers castrate their animals, clip their ears, and bob their animals’ tails all the time. They also cut-off the eye-teeth of any piglets so they don’t grow into large incisors and harm the mother when nursing. All this done without anesthesia nor clean-room requirements, ALL legal by law. They are qualified, just by being human, to do so. You have an odd idea of what humans are and are not allowed to do to animals. If it weren’t for all the “unlicensed” people doing minor surgery on their animals every minute of every day around the whole world you wouldn’t even be able to eat today nor feed your cats.

    • BS. I am saying that if an unqualified person (and farmers are unqualified to operate on domestic cats) operates on a cat they will be committing a crime. That is correct. So please shut up and go away. Go easy on the crack cocaine and ease back on the booze.
