Debarking involves surgically removing an animal's vocal cords
to reduce the sound of the animal's vocalizations.
Don't take their voice away and how pets communicate--it's very cruel.
Vocal distinctions are very important in order to communicate different meanings.
Here are some of the consequences when you debark or devocalize your pets:
Persistent coughing or gagging. Some animals become completely mute.
If the pet ever needs anesthesia, the scar tissue that forms in the throat
prevents the insertion of the correct size breathing tube--it makes anesthesia more of a risk for your pet. De-vocalization subjects animals to pain and stress along with many risks, some life threatening. Scar tissue blocking the airway may notbe evident until years after the devocalization. The pet struggles to breathe when exercising or in warm weather, gags on food and water, dies from choking or heat stroke. Corrective surgery for scar tissue removal obstructing the airway is very expensive.
