Question Laser Ear Cropping?

A friend of mine just went off about how he is getting his doberman puppy's ears cropped by laser cropping. He said that the pup will only need to be in posts for 4 - 6 weeks and the entire thing would only cost approx 150$ to do...

I've done some quick searching on DT and on the interwebs and have not found anything substantiating this. So I figure there are three possibilities here...

- My friend is a dumb ass and misunderstood whoever he talked to who was going to perform this procedure.

- His person who was going to perform this procedure is a dumb ass and has no clue what he's talking about OR is trying to sucker my friend. (who is not the brightest bulb in the box, thus this would not surprise me)

- I am a dumb ass because I have no clue what he's talking about and am pretty sure it's not possible.

I'd rather not be the dumb ass in this story. Can anyone shed light on this?

Well...I'd always be more concerned about the style of the crop than whether a laser was used to do the crop. For the most part, the people I know to be real artists at cropping ears DO NOT use lasers.

The length of time it takes for ears to stand is mostly a function of the quality of the ear cartilege...unless so much ear is removed that there's little ear left to post. I wouldn't be looking for a crop that would WOW me from someone who said something like this.

Who is actually doing the crop is much more important than how it's done IMO. Maybe your friend meant to say that it costs an additional $150 if you opt to do laser surgery verses the traditional method.

I bet Kouki is right. Probably the additional cost. I was offered to have laser on Peaches spay instead of the ol scalpel. I opted out because it already cost me a small fortune to begin with.
