    no one has experience with this brace? Id really like some input since this is only my 2nd dog ive had to get his ears done, and im 99% sure his left ear will need some bracing, so any advice would be helpful

    Well, I'd just talk to the vet you are using about bracing, taping, etc. and have him help you with the whole process. He should charge no extra for this. It looks alright, though, it's your dog, if you aren't hurting him go for it - but your vet should do it for you.

    I just had my 12 week old Chocolate Rednose's ears trimmed yesterday..... I could not have asked for a better look. It is an art and the vet I used has it mastered... I dont feel like there is enough reviews about him out there so I wanted to post, if anyone is looking in the central florida area for a master ear trimmer then use Dr. Glenn Finnell at the South Orlando Animal Hospital... He is amazing, professional, kind, knowledgable, clean and most of all an artist with a kind soul.. Everyone took to my baby Junior, he is a ladys man I must say but the tech that took care of him was particularly fond of him because she is a pitbull parent herself!! I cant say enough about this place... He reduces the ear by half and says it is the only appropriate pitbull look that he approves of. I tried to upload a pic, but it keeps giving me an error. idk why!!

    At what point do you remove the stitches post surgery? I have a rescued puppy that had already had the procedure but still has some stitches.

    If you don't know how long it's been since the ears were cropped, take the dog to a vet and ask them to take a look to make sure the edges are healed well enough to pull the sutures, but DO NOT let anyone wrap, tape, or otherwise mess with the ears once the sutures are out until the edges are completely healed and the scabs fall off on their own.

    Thank you very much. I have her being examined now, but I didn't know about the taping or ear sensitivities after suture removal. I appreciate the heads up.

  11. I know this is old and yes I'm post creeping but where in Ga did you get your dogs ears cropped , and how much was it just compiling a lot of different places and looking into all of them to make sure I get a good vet

    The vet that cropped Sako has retired. There's another one down there that's good though, I can't remember the name off the top of my head. I can get it if you want.

    I think Sako's crop was $250? Something like that.
     
  13. Yes please

  14. What is the point of cropping ears. Is it just for looks. Hubby wants to but I don't think it's beneficial or needed.

    Yes, ear cropping is a cosmetic procedure. Many of the things we do with our dogs aren't necessarily "needed," and are done for reasons that are generally only beneficial to the owner (like spay and neuter, for example).
     
  16. Ok just wanting to know we are new to pit owning and still learning.

    This is Koda should we tape his ears or do you think they still have a chance to stand up on their own? They are pretty much all the way healed. Any info would be appreciated thank you!

    Leave them alone until they're completely healed, the scabs have all fallen off on their own (don't pick them off) and the edges are clear, then you should post those. Do you know how to post ears? If not, watch these:
