I agree with you that tail docking and ear cropping should be allowed only when the pups are still young (they recuperate a lot faster at this age). However, grown dogs should NOT go through this experience.
Re: [cherygan] In your opinion, should Tail Docking and Ear Cropping in dog be ban in Malaysia

Speaking of which, some people actually go through "self-mutilation" to enhance their own appearance (i.e. body piercings, tattoos, wearing stilletto heels), or even for religious purposes (i.e. walking over flaming hot coals, even circumcision).
However, people do it out of their own free will, our fur kids do not have the ability to let us know if they want to snip it or not.
Even though I may agree to tail docking and ear cropping at a young age, I am of the opinion that declawing and cutting off vocal chords should be banned in Malaysia and every where else.
