To: 
> Tail Docking and Ear Cropping in British Columbia
>
> The College of Veterinarians of British Columbia, which is the college that regulates how we practice, has banned both ear cropping and tail docking in BC.
>
> The ban makes the practice of tail docking and alteration, along with ear cropping, an unethical practice of veterinary medicine, and veterinarians found continuing the practice will face disciplinary action from the CVBC. The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act authorizes the BC SPCA to investigate and recommend charges against any person, veterinarian or otherwise, believed to be carrying out such procedures.
