Ear Cropping

*     Ear Cropp​ing is a surgical procedure that reshapes the ear flap (pinna) to make it a certain shape. 

*     This helps make the ears stand up. 

*     This is an elective procedure that is done to achieve a look that is consistent with breed standards. 

*     Breeds that commonly have the ears cropped are Boxers, Great Danes, Doberman Pinschers, Miniature Pinschers, Schnauzers, Bouviers des Flandres, American Pit Bull and Staffordshire Terriers.

Ear cropping is done on puppies between 8 to 12 weeks of age

All vaccines must be current. 

We recommend pre-surgical blood work to evaluate the patient before surgery.

How Ear Cropping is done.

*     Presurgical pain medication is given

*     The patient is placed under general anesthesia

*     The hair on and around the ears is clipped and surgically prepared

*     The ear is measured and carefully marked

*     Using sterile procedure, the marked area is removed

*     The surgical site is sutured in a manner that will create the most cosmetic closure

*      If needed, the ears are bandaged (racked) in order to train the cartilage of the pinna to stand

The patient is carefully monitored until he/ she is fully awake

Post Operative care for Ear Crop

*     Suture removal should be done in 7 to 10 days

*     Be sure to give the antibiotics and pain medication as directed

*     Keep the bandage (rack) clean and dry

*     Monitor for any odors coming from the bandage

*     Make sure that your puppy does not scratch or rub at the bandages

*     Let us know if you have any questions or concerns
