Do his ears need to be taped?

Postby BlockyDog » Wed Jan 25, 2012 8:24 pm

Hey everyone so its been about three weeks and Bishops ears are all fully healed. Thanks to everyone who gave me their advice. My next question do they need to be taped? They seem to be standing all on their own haven't seen them once fold on to his head. Let me know what you think. Once again I appreciate the advice.

No, if they are standing fine on their own you don't need to do anything. The whole point of taping is to keep them up until they are strong enough to do it on their own, it's usually not needed for short crops like pit bulls get.

Didnt you have this done at a vet? Did they not give you this kind of info at time of discharge post-op?

I'm not sure if it's your tone. But ease off God forbid someone asks for advice on this site. Yes it was done by a vet does it look like it was done otherwise. Do his ears look mangled NO then why the f*ck do you always have hostility in your messages. You know f-you and f this site I'm sick of all the imperialistic bs. And to your other comment on my other thread at least I took the precaution unlike the others who just waived it off. Sure not everything is conclusive; sh*t i can say looking both ways doesn't mean i'm not going to get hit by a car.

PITBULL FORUM I'd like to say it was fun but the abuse far out ways the wonderful times I could have had. Thank you to those who actually enjoy spreading their knowledge it was appreciated.

I think his ears look nice too, even tho I'm a natural ear girl. I don't think she was coming at you hostile, rather than questioning the vet that didn't give you this info. There are some vets out there that don't provide the info they should. I think that's all she was asking. It obviously wasn't an at home crop job. I wish you would stay. You can always block people you don't like so you can't see their posts. I'd really like to watch your pup grow up...

How old is your pup?

I'm just curious, I'm not a fan of most crop jobs, I'm just curious because around here NO vets will do a crop after the pup is 14 weeks old and some won't do it past 12 weeks. I'm not a fan of crop jobs I'm very picky and I dont know if our next will be cropped even though we intend to show. Just wondering how old your pup was when you had it done?

Uhhhh....there's no "tone" in written messages?

Good lord, oversensitive much? It was a genuine question about why your vet didnt provide you with this basic info.

It's always funny to me when someone gets all huffy and puffy saying they'll never come here again...but then they do.

Its common for people to forget what they were told at discharge due to the excitement of getting your pup home. I think studies have shown people remember 20% of what they were told?

Most vets will set up a recheck appointment after the surgery to make sure everything is going well before its too late to change it if its not. I would set up a recheck and have the surgeon take a peek at them if you have ANY concerns.

I think they look great, but without seeing him in person, I can't say for sure that they are perfect.
