If you're looking to shear your dog's ears into shadows of their former, floppy selves, you're out of luck in British Columbia.
And, hopefully soon, everywhere else.
Citing ethical concerns, veterinarians in the Canadian province voted to ban the practice this week - despite its popularity among dog breeders and the competition crowd.
"Ear cropping is an unnecessary procedure unless carried out in cases of injury or for reasons of health concerns," said Larry Ode of the B.C. College of Veterinarians in a statement.
Or, as animal advocate Tracey Stewart publicly pleads, just don't.
Not even if you think it has some sort of medical value.
"There has been no proven science to support the argument that these procedures prevent injury and infection," Stewart writes. "The decision to remove these vital appendages comes down to a fashion choice."
British Columbia veterinarians largely seem to agree.
