What kind of charges should be filed against this vet and the man. At the very least the vet should be reported to a professional board and both should be charged with animal cruelty.

people tattoo their dogs all the time for identification, they are wide awake when its done and while uncomfortable none ever seem traumatized by that...infact they seem to react less to the id tat than they do to a microchip injection.
this is only different in that it an image instead of a series of numbers.

NOW...I would NEVER anethatize a dog specifically to do a decorative tattoo...
BUT...the dog was already under sedation for a surgery and the ink was placed while the dog was in recovery from that, it wasn't anesthetized any longer specifically for it...recovery from anesthesia takes a little while..., and it was done under veterinary supervision...

cant say I agree or disagree with the practice, but I find something like ear cropping (a purely cosmetic surgery in which the animal is anesthetized specifically for it) to be MUCH more cruel than something like this...and ear cropping is not only perfectly legal but seems to be PREFERED in this country...I mean I got reamed out by someone for NOT having my Doberman cropped...

im also a tattood person and slept through 3 of my current 5 lol.

I don't see anything wrong with it. I'm a lot more P.O.ed about the fact that our local Humane Society tattooed the area just above my deaf Great Dane's hoo-hoo when I brought her in for spay surgery without my OK. It wouldn't be so bad if it was a pretty tattoo, but it was an ugly looking female symbol done in blue ink a la prison style. Every time she rolls over to get her belly rubbed, I'm reminded that she's a girl (duh). I have two tattoos myself that I spent months getting prepared and selecting a fine tattoo artist to make them beautiful. If the Humane Society insisted on tattooing my dog, I would have had my artist do a pretty tat, at least.

Hey Scooby. I see you're new here. Welcome! Have you posted a picture yet of your Dane? We'd love to see her.

I wouldn't d do that t to Bella but I agree with foxy. The dog was already under. It's ugly but I don't think it hurt the dog

That is the National Symbol to let vets know she was already spayed. No biggie BUT tons of animals get lost end up with people who want to get dog fixed. Before the tattoo lots were re opened! cause it was the only way to find out IF they been spayed already. So they come up with this tattoo. Be thankful she not a cat!! They get the tip of their ear cut off!

I got no problem with it. The dog didn't feel it, and this guy has a very distinctive way to i.d. his dog going forward should it ever be stolen.

"What kind of sick vet would let this happen"?
The same kind that neuters or spays your dog and then tattoos in their ears (that's gotta hurt later)
And they all actually do it while the "poor pup is drugged after surgery"
No biggie..I'm just wondering if you'll be able to see it all that well when his hair starts growing in..

It's not the tat which bothers me so much as the idea of a vet letting a non professional in the recovery area after serious surgery. What if the dog contracted a serious infection or complication after surgery? Just seems very unprofessional to me. But apparently I'm in the minority here. So whatever.....
