Ear crop tomorrow morning!!

Postby sparkplug » Sun May 04, 2008 2:51 pm

this is a pro cropped ears post, looking for advice for care (even though the vet provides details, wanted to ask the forum their stories.

Hey all!

Tomorrow morning 10 am my baby goes in to have her ears cropped. I think it looks soooo beautiful and I'm very excited.

I've received a lot of feedback from people when they ask me if I will get her ears cropped. It ranges from

    its cruel & barbaric
    makes the pit look mean
    too expensive


Please share your after cropping stories. Gotcha's and what to look for, please :D

Thanks in advance!

:peace: [/list]

I think it looks good if done right(not a fan of the shorter crops at all.)

A friend I had in Albany had a male who's ears were done as a puppy, and they had to tape them to stand correctly, and constantly monitor how they were doing. So...they sound like a lot of work lol

Have you seen the vets portfolio? How comfortable did he make you feel during your consult (as in, did he ask you questions about what you wanted and give you advice on how that particular crop was likely to look on your particular pup?)

Well, the vet always makes me feel comfy; I've been going to him for nearly 10 years now and they vet doing the surgery has been in business at the same place since 1975. The vet clinic is one of the best in the area (knoxville tn)- they work hand in hand with University of Tennessee, which I think is awesome :D

I gave examples of what I would like the ears to look like and from the way she holds them plus the cartilage he showed me a few style to pick from.

Outstanding guy, I would trust him to work on me :D

Thanks for the questions!! :peace:

BTW, just a helpful tip. Don't post pics of her crop until they are completely healed. We have had a few people post pictures after surgery and it looks horrible. ;)

Thank You!!! Seeing fresh crop pix makes me a little sad. I think its the dried blood on a puppy that bugs me. I hope everything goes well and she not in pain.
