How old was he when he was cropped again? As they get older, the cartiledge becomes more 'set' and it becomes more difficult to alter ear stance cosmetically. I thought I read he was older then most vets recommend? If so, the post-operative care increases and the possibility is there that they may not stand quite right. I would continue with your vets suggestions (call him back!!) If he is a vet willing to crop outside the recommended optimal ages, he MUST have experience with this.

he said in another post his dog was 5 months old when he got cropped.(and wants to breed him when he is 'old enough' because his friends all want one like him) :sad:
as suggested, call the vet that did the crop
