ANY surgery can be dangerous, as you said.  In 17 + years involved with
Shelites and Collies we lost TWO and both of them was to the anesthesia.

Something that no one has mentioned as a consideration to de-bark or not:
Any surgery can be dangerous.   My vet refuses to de-bark dogs because
he has seen & heard about some serious complications.   I have a friend
that breeds/shows Norwegian Elkhounds.   Some years ago, one of her
males won BOB at their National.   Elkies can bark a lot and the sound is
very penetrating.   Just a few months after he won his National, she had him
debarked, he seemed ok afterwards when she brought him home.   He died
overnight - bled to death.

I am not against (though I would not do so myself), debarking, but I think
this
attitude that it is perfectly safe should be examined.

as always, JMO
