Ear cropping is a common surgical procedure which involves removing a portion of a dog’s ears in order to achieve a specific look. Many dog owners choose to have their companions’ ears cropped, either to remain consistent with the breed or simply out of preference. The breeds most often associated with cropped ears include Boxers, Great Danes, Schnauzers, American Pit Bulls, Staffordshire Terriers, Dobermans and Miniature Pinschers.
Whatever the reason for the surgery, it’s important that ear cropping is handled by a skilled professional that is specially trained and experienced in performing these delicate procedures.
At Dogwood Animal Hospital, we offer professional ear cropping services for dogs between the ages of 8-12 weeks. Our doctors and care team will take every precaution to ensure that your pet’s procedure is carried out as safely and successfully as possible. This includes conducting thorough pre-surgical screening and pre-anesthetic testing to ensure that your dog is well enough to undergo the procedure. More importantly, we’ll be there to provide guidance and support during your pet’s recovery.
