ANIMAL TATTOOING - Has Owners Gone too Far with Their Pets???
HAS OWNERS GONE TOO FAR WITH THEIR PETS???
I read this article on EXAMINER.COM about a man named, MISTAH METRO, a dog owner & Tattoo Artist - and how a VETERINARIAN permitted this man to put a tattoo on his dog, while the dog was sedated, due to surgery for having her spleen removed.
MISTAH soon bragged about his dog's NEW LOOK on his INSTAGRAM account stating --
"One of the many reasons my dog is cooler than yours. She had her spleen removed yesterday and the vet let me tattoo her while she was under"
What MISTAH had done to his canine companion is not ILLEGAL, but it sure got some attention from many who consider this very distasteful.
I myself am sickened by this owner's act -- not understanding how anyone can do such a thing, not to mention how can any respectful vet permit this to take place in their place of care and business, whether or not it is the owner doing it, or allowing it - the VET should have declined the request considering that the animal was in the vet's care. A Veterinary Clinic is for the care of animals --- IT is NOT a TATTOO SHOP!
In my opinion - I do not understand how any compassionate owner would feel the need to do such a thing - for mere enjoyment and vain purposes. You would honestly think that the owner would be worried sick about their companion going through a surgery - NOT requesting such an idea and then bragging about it on their instagram account.
WHAT DO YOU THINK??? DID THE OWNER GO TO FAR?? SHOULD THE VET BE IN TROUBLE FOR PERMITTING SUCH AN ACT?? We would love to hear your OPINIONS on this --
