Ear Crops are a procedure where the doctor removes part or all of the external flaps of an animal's ear to the desired shape and height. This is done when the dog is young, the exact age varies by breed, but is usually between 7 and 10 weeks of age. There are many breeds that regularly have their ears cropped, but the most common breeds are Doberman, Boxer, Schnauzer, and American Bully. The only breed we do not crop are Great Danes. For Danes we recommend contacting Dr. Nancy Baumann at Decorah Animal Hospital.
Below are some of the pictures of ear crops that were done at our clinic by Dr. Greer.
