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?"

The goals!


Write laws in states that do not ban docking.



Review existing laws to make sure they are comprehensive enough.



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