I went the route that Sleipner stated, Dr. Robert LaBounty in Studio City, CA. $175 no bloodwork, no overnight stay, and he let me stand right next to him and watch the whole procedure. That vet is old school, and very very cool, quite a comedian I might add.

I feel that it is personal preference, however there are some reasons out there that people crop.

Some examples:

People that take their dogs hunting might worry about their dog's ear getting caught on a sharp branch, or ripped off by a boar (for the hoghunters). It makes a difference because if the little vein in the ear gets punctured, there is a lot of blood loss.

To prevent possible ear infections later in life.

That's all I can think of right now

I see you're in Jacksonville! We live in Kingsland, GA! I took my pup to Waycross, GA to Satilla Animal Clinic. They did a GREAT job!!! It was $318. That was including the overnight stay, bloodwork, pain meds, and they did the laser crop. I seriously could not be anymore satisfied. They were great and really cared about our pup!


This was right after taking the bandages off!



I'll take a more recent pic and post it then!

I have a couple questions...

What does the bloodwork tell them?

Has anyone been denied an ear crop, or know anyone that has been denied an ear crop because of the "Bloodwork" results?

I mean, what specifically are they checking with their blood that would disqualify a dog from getting their ears cropped?

The bloodwork is optional but SHOULD be done. It's done to make sure that everything internally is working properly and to make sure there won't be any complications during surgery such as: organs failing like the kidneys, liver, or heart.

Its definitely a good idea to get the bloodwork done because then the vet will know if the dog is a "high risk" surgery. They will know what they need to have nearby. Its just good to get the bloodwork done because you don't wanna lose your dog in surgery!

So then with the bloodwork done, the vet can guarantee 100% that your dog will survive?

No, the bloodwork checks to see if the dog is allergic to things used in the opperation. I.E. Anastesia(sp?) Hospitals do it to people before surgery too.

I wouldnt say that. But don't quote me on that. The best thing you could do is ask the vet! Ask them what its done for? And what are the pros and the cons?!
Its easy to pick up the phone and call.

As a matter of fact I have to call my doggies vet on Monday cuz I think the little puppers has a small case of mange...uh oh.....
