US urged to stop devocalising dogs

Controversial surgery performed to stop dogs from barking is banned in many countries.

    A controversial surgery performed on pets has upset animal lovers and some vets.
     
    Called devocalisation, the surgery entails cutting a dog's vocal chords so it cannot bark.

    The procedure is banned in many countries but now campaigners want the same in the US.
