How Much Does Tail Docking Cost?

Tail docking, also known as tail cropping or bobbing, is the process where a portion of a dog’s tail is removed.  During the process, the dog’s blood supply is cut off at the tail using a rubber ligature, and after a few days, it will fall off on its own.

Tail docking is generally done for cosmetic purposes and will always be performed before the dog turns five days old.  While some states are trying to ban this procedure, it is still unrestricted throughout the United States.  The cost of tail docking is going to vary depending on the dog, the vet performing the procedure and geographical location.
