    I don't know about where you live but here there are vets that claim they can do a de-crowing procedure for 180.00. I have no idea how its done or anything and I have never used this service. Good luck to you though.

    Hey I did some looking around for you and if you go up there to the top blue line and click "SEARCH" and then type in the keyword "DECROWING" it will show a few threads with some good thoughts. [​IMG]
