AVMA updates statewide information regarding docking


Updated April 2018

Several states regulate veterinary procedures such as tail docking, ear cropping and devocalization. The following is a summary of those state laws and regulations that AVMA research has identified.

"Can you not breed a horse that is just handsome or beautiful without disfiguring their bodies?"

-Bennie Jean Kuehnle, The Animal Institute of Holistic Health


The goals!

#1 

Write laws in states that do not ban docking.

 

#2

Review existing laws to make sure they are comprehensive enough.

 

#3

Demand that people who break these laws are given the largest, strongest punishments allowable.
