CVMA Policy on Disbudding and Dehorning of Cattle

The CVMA recognizes that disbudding and/or dehorning of cattle are important for human and animal safety. Because disbudding or dehorning causes pain and discomfort, the CVMA recommends the use and/or development of procedures and practices that reduce or eliminate these effects. This includes the use of approved, clinically effective medications.

The procedure should be performed as early as possible, with appropriate use of analgesia and/or anesthesia.

Pain management should be implemented or continued for any animal showing signs of pain after the procedure.
