These elective surgeries include ‘fake, bean-shaped testicles made out of solid silicone, which come in a range of sizes for the neutered dog to maintain pride and self-eteem’ from a company called Neuticles (http://www.neuticles.com/facts.php), who claim to have implanted a whopping 250,000 pets since 1995!
Another popular surgery for pets is, believe it or not, liposuction! What on earth happened to the idea of exercise and less food?,
Then there are the nose jobs costing a total of 2.5 million dollars in 2010 and eyelifts costing 1.6 million dollars and full face lifts are mentioned as well.
I can understand the necessity of performing a nose job if the dog was unable to breathe, but would it not be a much better idea to get the breeders to start breeding these dogs the way they were intended to look, instead of manipulating the breed?
Here are some pics of what dogs used to look like taken from . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hex00WjSobE, as well a link to an article reporting on the elective surgeries below.
