Plastic Surgery for Pets?!

So if you thought nose jobs and face lifts were simply the preserve for us humans, think again! 

New figures out show that Britons are spending millions of pounds a year on plastic
surgery for their pets!

Absurd? Well we think so.

According to Pet Plan (the UK’s largest pet insurance provider), claims worth £1.5m were paid out in 2010 for nose surgery on cats and dogs and almost £250,000 for dental work on household pets.

The trend for cosmetic surgery on pets started in the US (obviously), where chin lifts among dogs became popular in the 1990’s to stop excessive drooling.

According to Petplan though, pets in the UK often require treatment due to medical defects rather than vanity on behalf of their owners.  Oh, I guess that’s alright then ; )
