    Hi and welcome!

    I'm not familiar with what the ears look like immediately after a crop. I've seen a few pictures here and there...I'm curious to know about the edge of the ear. It looks as though the fur covered part is sort of rolling in...maybe a little puckered looking. I assume the puckered look is because of scabs forming, but will it always look rolled in like that? If so was that the desired look you were going for?
  4. From what I understand it helps the edges when they finally heal up to grow hair instead of being bare skin. I got it done through "The Pitbull Store" here in Phoenix and it was done at the Camelback Animal Hospital so I trust the Vet knows what he's doing. They said if they're not done how I like then they'll go back in and correct them. Just gonna see how they heal over the next week or so. I was going for a short crop.

    It shouldn't look that way when they're healed. My Dane pup had a similar thing happening with one ear. This was at 11 weeks, 4 weeks after his crop, see how the bottom looks puckered?

    As everything healed and settled it completely smoothed out. This is now at 7 months

    Wow...I had no idea. Well, for me I think that would be my desired look. I like it better whent he fur goes to the edge of the ear vs. them having that naked skin look right on the edge of the ear. Thanks for the explanation. And hopefully it'll end up like Kayla's dane, so you don't have to do the surgery a second time-ouch!

    Cute pup... but being the sucker I am for ears, I loved her "before" picture! :aww: But you have to understand, I have a kinship of sorts with ears... Mollie's ears are what got me through the death of my sister. I'm surprised that dog ever had hair on her ears after I spend hours rubbing them every night for 3 plus months! :p She is adorable now, but this before picture makes my :hearts: melt!

  14. Just wanted to give an update on Medusa Ear Crop. This is how she looked last night when we took her out for Halloween. They've healed up very nice.

    Looks good. Short for my taste but it looks good! She is so cute in her Halloween costume. There is no way I could put either of mine in one. They would tear it to shreds. I think my rottie will eventually let me. He's becoming pretty mellow.

    Are you planning on posting those? They have gigantic "pockets" in them that are folding them in on themselves.
