yeah hes way too old. i highly doubt you could even find a vet that would do it without having a medical benefit to CROPPING his ears.

its OK though,cropping ears has nothing to do with the quality of a dog.
infact in this day and age were ignorance reigns supreme,having a dog with natural ears is a safer bet since the hsus and peta types think any dog with cropped ears is a pit,you can fly under the radar.

ive heard of places that will do laser crops up to a year old, but odds are your going to have a hard time finding someone to do it. i guess you can lie, and say the dog has consistant ear infections or something.

In my opinion, you should have thought of this before now. The problem with doing it now is that the cartiledge is more or less formed the way it will be, and it would be hard for the ear to stand, you would probably have a lot of post op visits.

Also... If the vet hurts your dog wrapping his ears or placing the cone on him, he may become head shy because older dogs tend to be more sensitive to sutures. Then you have to consider that he won't ever let you touch the ears, because he would remember the pain associated with having it done. JMO

If you ever have doubts with a procedure like that, it's best to go with your first instinct and not have it done. Glad you came to us for your question... Hope the insight helped, bud.

Not to mention if you happen to get a dog that has those crazy ears? Those are great. My next dog will have natural ears..

If you find a vet that does laser and knows what they are doing you can have a short crop done. Short crops usually have no issue standing unless your pups ears lay flat now.

However it has to be a vet you trust and that you have seen good work come from them.

I have a 2 year old getting her ears done in a few months ( for medical reasons) and 3 girls that will be getting theres done at 1 year (non medical, just preference) , all by laser.

holly how do you go about figuring out if your vet does good crops? i love my vet to death, and i don't want to get belle or rudi's ears done, but in the future when i get another puppy i would like it to have it's ears cropped. would my vet have photos of this? how can you figure this out? he is a well loved vet in our area and also a couple neighboring towns, but that doesn't mean he's amazing at crops.

Some vets will have pics of crops they have done, But you also have to be specific and clear on what you want.

They only reason I choose to use the vet I am using, Especially at this age, is I have seen dogs he has done. Its hard to find a proper vet for cropping. I have 2 vets in my area that crop, but am driving almost 2 hours to use this other vet, because I have seen his work and know he can give me what I want.

yeah, I found my vet by asking everyone I saw that had a dogs ears cropped where they went... It was like a personal survey, I delivered for Pizza hut so I had the opportunity to meet a lot of people with a bunch of dogs.
