Bill that Prohibits Dog Debarking

A leading Rhode Island state lawmaker says the state should outlaw the surgical removal of the vocal chords of a dog or cat.

Senate Majority Leader Dominick J. Ruggerio announced legislation Monday to prohibit so-called "debarking" surgery unless a veterinarian deems it medically necessary. It's used by some breeders and pet owners as a way to deal with especially loud animals. Ruggerio calls the surgery painful, inhumane and almost always unnecessary.

Debarking or devocalization is a surgical procedure that leaves dogs and cats with the ability to only make a raspy of wheezy whispering noise. Besides being inhumane, the procedure can cause difficulty breathing, chronic gagging, pneumonia, and infection.

Barking dogs may be annoying, but imagine how scary it would be if there was no warning that an angry canine is nearby.
