older pittie crop-medical

Is it possible to have a 4yo pit's ears cropped? I don't want to do it but she and her "little sister" have gotten in some fights and even though we try to keep it from happening, it still does on occasion...totally our fault, letting our guard down. Anyhow, the little one always goes for the big ones ears and WON'T let go-and they are a mess now. Not to mention the pain she goes through when it happens. Rehoming the little one is not really an option since she came from a terrible situation to begin with and we feel she is now our responsibility. Rehoming the 4 yo is completely out of the question. We just are trying to figure out how to best handle this. If they are consistently monitored properly (ummhummm...husband!!!) we don't have an issue but when he doesn't do what he is supposed to it is a big dangerous problem. We've had a LOOOONNNGGG talk and are both on the same page and agree it is our responsibility to keep them safe and happy. The little one has issues and we need to do a better job for her as well as our big blue. ANY help/advice is appreciated. We are also hitting the training and exercise aspect of working towards a resolution.

You'll be hard pressed to find an ethical vet that will crop a dog that old.
Crate and rotate would be only option if you won't get rid of either dog. Also invest in a break/parting stick just in case paths cross and a fight breaks out again.

^ I agree. Proper management is what is necessary here. Even if you crop the ears, the dog will just find something else to chomp on, and that other body part could be far more important.

Its so frustrating! They are the only 2 (out of 6 dogs) that don't get along. And they are both such good dogs. We have break sticks, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. We can't even figure out what provokes the fights other than threshold excitement. We use basket muzzles, crate/rotate right now. Maybe that's just how things are going to be and we both need to accept it. The fights are NASTY and dangerous! They only do it at home, not at the park, in the car, anywhere else...sometimes they even sleep together.

You honestly think a crop will solve this problem?!?!?!? Please learn from your multiple mishaps. These dogs don't need to spend time together. Crate and rotate.
