    Can anyone suggest someone do crop ears or at least that would do the after care fi they were done? The closer North, the better. Thanks

    I would start with asking your breeder who they might suggest. They're usually your best resource for questions like that.

    There's 2 in WA in this thread.

    Unfortunately I'm in Canada and the breeder is on the other side of the states. That one in Tacoma wouldn't be too far. Thanks!

    The breeder may still have leads for you in the area. It wouldn't hurt to ask. A lot of breeders network with other breeders so they may be able to put you in touch with someone closer that can make a recommendation as well.

    WTF? Okay I am dropping out of here right now. You would let someone cut off half your ear? Maybe you would...whatever

    Your opinion on ear cropping has not been asked for. The question was "can anyone recommend a vet". Keep it on topic, hmm?

    How old is your puppy? I was under the impression that with newer regulations no dog can cross into the U.S. without rabies vaccine, which isn't done until at least 16 weeks which is pretty much outside the window for cropping. Dane friends out west were talking about this very thing recently now that most provinces have banned cropping and it sounded like having it done in the states really wasn't an option.

    I just brought him across the border Friday into Canada. If they're too young for their rabies vaccine then they simply don't need the vaccine, but maybe it's an issue going back into the states?

    I'm on the fence on if I even want to do it with this dog. His ears sit really nice as is and I feel guilty about it. I'm just kind of weighing out my options now. How often do they usually have to go back for aftercare? Tacoma would be quite a drive and I just had to go down to Seatac on Friday for the little man.

    This is from the CDC website, so yeah, it certainly looks like crossing the border for cropping is not an option.
    "Puppies must not be vaccinated against rabies before 3 months of age, so the youngest that a puppy can be imported into the United States is 4 months of age."

    Good find. I wonder if importing is the term they'd use for just a day trip.

    FWIW, I ended up going with dr. laura lind at vca parkway. No problem crossing the border either way, likely do to luck and ignorance.

    Glad to hear you didn't have any problems at the border.
