1389. Anti-social behaviour - barking dogs

EMAIL DATED APRIL 24, 2013 

Hi Doc Judy ,

I'm Cynthia.  I adopted a 5 years only beagles recently he bark non stop even for hours when no one home. I got anxiety medication from vet even dog trainer to teach him but is not useful as long as no ones home he bark and crying banging at out glass door our neighbors not happy and start to complained.

We thinking of return him to SPCA but we really do love him now especially my 5 years old girl so I google I found your website. Would like to know are you willing to help us to do the surgery and the cost? As we already spend 1k plus over Bobbi for the pass few months and his medication is 100 plus a month but I don't seem any improvement.

to daniel, Cynthia
I am Dr Sing from Toa Payoh Vets.

Debarking by surgery is an alternative. The cost is around $500 for ventral approach surgery which is more effective than the oral approach. The dog needs to be hospitalised for 3 days post-op. I will be overseas from April 26 to May 7. Will do the surgery when I am back
