    Default dog ear cropping

    Thank you in advance for all the lectures of why Not to do this. If you start then you may get my lecture on circumcision in people.

    Now that I have that out of the way,- does anyone know of a vet who does this procedure in the RD?

    I will not lecture you, nor do I know a vet in RD who does it.

    We had a boxer's ears cropped back around 2000, just wanted to say that the best advice anyone gave us was to wrap the ears around tampons each day. Worked like a charm.

    I have no opinion, but found it interesting.

    A dog tattoo gets all the attention, but ears and tails can be cut off without outcry.

    Iīm not going to lecture you, I just hope no one cuts off your ears against your will because they think they stick out a bit, no, infact I do hope so. Pathetic, ostentatious, abusive owners will always be around, I canīt help that, but I can share my views.

    Eat cropping is not inhumane if done properly at a young age by a vet who knows what he is doing. Tree huggers will think differently. If it's a Doberman the job can be tricky. Too small am ear gives them an unflattering, mean look. Other issue is that the ear matches the size of the dog and stsnds up properly. Done correctly it improves a Dobies appearance.
