The problem many veterinarians have with tail docking and ear cropping is twofold. First, they are painful. Most tail docking is done without anesthesia. Four day old puppies are helpless as they have their tails cut off and the stumps sutured shut. Ear cropping is always done with anesthesia, but the post-operative recovery is painful. Multiple dressing changes and ear taping can go on for weeks, adding to the pain.
