15 week old pit ear crop problem!!
I just got my 15 week old pitbull puppy's ears cropped yesterday morning. Everything went good until we got home. I seen that my puppy was miserable and his plastic e-collar that the vet gave him was squishing his ears down. So I looked on line for other options. And i seen some breeders use "the towel e-collar" which is suppose to have the same effect just a little more comfortable for the puppy. So I tried it and he was doing fine all day today until he finally reached one ear some how to scratch it. So i immediately put the original e-collar back on because I was afraid of him ripping out his stitches, just to be on the safe side... But when I looked at his ear, he had ripped one stitch in the middle. I drove 5 hours to the vet where he got his ears done, so I cant necessarily just drive back. Don't know what to do. Wondering if i should take him to a local vet even though they don't do ear cropping if necessary?? Help please. New to ear cropping and welcome to any helpful advice.
