Ear Cropping

Ear cropping is a common surgical procedure which involves the removal of a portion of a dog’s ears to achieve a specific look. Many owners choose to have their dogs’ ears cropped, either to remain consistent with the breed or simply as a matter of preference. The ideal age to perform this procedure is between 10 – 12 weeks. The breeds most often associated with cropped ears include Cane Corso, Dogo Argentino, Presa Canario, Boxers, Great Danes, Schnauzers, American Pit Bulls, Staffordshire Terriers, Dobermans, and Miniature Pinschers.

Whatever the reason, it’s important that ear cropping surgery is handled by a skilled professional that is specially trained and experienced in performing these delicate procedures. At Luv-N-Care Animal Hospital, we offer professional ear cropping services for dogs between the ages of 12 weeks and 6 months. The closer to 12 weeks of age, the greater the chances of achieving optimal results.

Our doctors and support staff 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 healthy enough to undergo the procedure. Furthermore, we’ll be there to provide guidance, support, and care during your pet’s post-surgical recovery.

Have a specific style in mind? Feel free to bring in a photo of your preference and we’ll do our best to accommodate your requests. Contact Luv-N-Care Animal Hospital today to learn more about our professional ear cropping services.

At what age should I crop my puppy’s ears?

The ideal age depends on the breed and texture of ear cartilage. In general, we recommend this procedure at 9 – 11 weeks for best results. Contact us to inquire about the appropriate age for your dog to undergo this surgery.

Should I have my puppy’s ears cropped?

This is your personal decision. It is important to note that as an elective cosmetic procedure, dog ear cropping is not right for everyone. We recommend consulting with our surgeons if you are unsure and need to learn more. A discussion with the doctor will give you the opportunity to learn the pros and cons of ear cropping. From there you will be able to make the best decision for your new puppy.
