ear cropping based on weight or age?
hey guys, i had a little concern when i took my pup to the Vet today, maybe some of you guys can shed some light. i took my puppy to the vet today to have him consulted about getting his ears cropped, he is 11 weeks old but weighs 16 pounds (breeder might have lied about age, but that's a thread i already made). vet took a look at him and said "his age seems accurate from what i can tell, i can set up an appointment for two Weeks from now" i asked " don't dobermans have to be between the age of 8 weeks to 12 weeks to have their ears cropped?" and he replied witI've heardh " I base the ear croppings on their weight I will only crop the ears if they are between 20 - 25 pounds. sometimes the ears stay standing sometimes they don't it just depends on genetics". does this sound right? first time i've heard someone base ear croppings off weight and not age, what do you guys think? should i just go to another vet? all help is appreciated oh and by the way sorry for all the bad grammar and misspelled words, I am on my phone and using the touch screen is very hard :/
