At Aztec Animal Hospital, we offer the best possible care for your puppy. Some breeds of dog commonly have their ears cropped. Ear cropping is the removal of a part or all of the pinna, the external visible flap of the ear.
This cosmetic procedure is done with the puppy under anesthesia for the comfort of the puppy and the best surgical outcome. We utilize a surgical laser which provides a cleaner, less painful, and faster healing incision than traditional scalpel or scissors. Your puppy will be given pain medication at the time of the surgery and will go home with additional medication and an E-collar to protect their ears. Depending on your puppy’s ears, they may be sent home with a cap to start standing the ears early. Two weeks after the surgery, taping and posting begin to get the ears to stand up best.
We require a presurgical exam with Dr. Florez and require proof of current vaccination prior to surgery. This is done to ensure that your puppy is as healthy as possible prior to surgery.
We know that many people trusted Dr. Weaver and his beautiful ear crops. Before his retirement, he passed his vast knowledge and excellent technique onto Dr. Florez. Your pet is in very capable hands here at Aztec Animal Hospital. Contact us today to learn more about our ear cropping services.
