Hi doc, iam the original tat anon and my question was purely out of curiosity. My friend sent me pictures of dogs with tattoos and I was curious. I didn't know it would cause problems. I am sorry.
There’s always a troll somewhere, I wouldn’t worry about it.
When I received the original ask about tattoos and piercings in pets, I presumed you were talking about things like this:
Which some of you will remember from being in the news a couple of years back.
This dog had surgery, it looks like there’s still an iv line in its front leg, and my only response to things like this is just ‘what the hell’.
You might think that people don’t do this, because the general public should be sane and sensible, but in my short career I have been asked on a few occasions whether we could pierce a cat’s ears while it was desexed, or whether we would supply sedatives for tattooing an animal.
We do use ear tattoos in dogs and cats. Desexing tattoos are placed at the time of desexing, when the animal is anaesthetised. Identification tattoos in Australia are most commonly used in racing greyhounds and purebred dog breeders/farms. In this situation it’s generally puppies at their first vaccine that are done, and they’re conscious. I hated seeing it done and would prefer other alternatives, like microchipping.
So there is a bit of apples to oranges going on. There are cultural differences and a range of experiences out there, and interacting with different viewpoints in a civilized manner is one of the most interesting parts of the internet.
I am 22 years old, currently living in New Zealand, I have recently
finished studying, and I am living at home again, Iv had pen pals before
and really enjoyed it. Things I like are Tattoos, I have many Studio
Ghibli ones and some Sailor Moon ones, I like Korean Dramas, Anime,
Manga, all that nerdy shit, and I love cats I have four of them. I am
also a Vegan, so I like plants and shit I guess. I like open minded
people, cause if you say dumb stuff I will fight you. But dont get me
wrong I am a nice person easy to get along with and talk to. So Im
looking for cool people to talk to and send letters to, and who knows
maybe we fall in love. JK ew.
I would like people who are around the same age as me, 20+ but not old
boring mature people, Im not at that level of mature and boring yet,
Male or Female I dont care really. If we vibe then that’s all that
matters YO! I dont care what country you are from either.
