The average pricing for ear crops, in my experience, is roughly between $250 to $400, depending on the vet.

Honestly, if you want a nice crop, go to an experienced vet, who can show you a portfolio. Price shouldn't matter--if they mess up the crop, its permanent.

I paid $200 and that is cheap for this area. Usually runs $350-$650 here. Kinda crazy

My dog's parents were both done for $200. They both have an extremely short battle crop. :( I hate their ears.

I pay $250-$350 depending on the age and weight of the pup. That includes the surgery and ALL follow up appts and meds -includes antibiotics if the ears get infected. Its more $ upfront but it ensures the pup gets all necessary care. That price also includes a fecal and any shots that were due at that time.

NO! it's not the money that makes it quality....

you should look at their bullies first. If they don't have bullies with ears cropped and they say they do it good.. NO WAY.. or if their bullies look crappy. .then don't do it.

Personally I don't like the Sharp end ear cropped. It makes the head looks small.

I've never had a dog cropped and will never have a dog cropped. That being said, I kind of think of "you get what you pay for" when it comes to cropping. That's just my opinion. If I heard of someone cropping for $60, I'd run!

It isn't the money that makes the quality, this is true, BUT honestly, $60?? What about pre-anesthesia blood work? What about the anesthesia itself? Plus the Vets time? $60 dollars would not cover that no way, no how. Pain meds?
It's not quite the same thing as low cost spay/neuter clinics, where the actual cost of the surgies is absorbed by funding.

Looking at the vets portfolio IS a must. (Most vets don't have 'their bullies' running around the office for you to look at) All crops are not created equal, and the vet may be good at certain crops, but not at what you are looking for. Afterwards is a really bad time to find that out.
