A state initiative to outlaw canine ear cropping has been affixed to the California Veterinary Medical Board's sunset review, and if passed, would enact the first cosmetic surgery ban in the United States. Sunset review is regular assessment by legislators of the continuing need for a state agency to exist. While California Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) leaders claim to favor the ban per the group's position against cosmetic surgery, rumors abound that politics are at play. "The CVMA is in a very difficult position with the bill related to cosmetic surgery ban," says Duane Flemming, California practice owner, attorney, and CVMA member.
