Ear cropping with laser, in stead of scalpel

Anyone heard of it, or had it done with their pup?? What are the pros and cons?? Are there any cons? We found a place that does it about an hour a way verses a place in our town.

I found this site (a Vet who does laser ear cropping), and has this list of things why it is better. My sister's Vet spayed her dog using laser...and I can tell you the healing process was nothing short miraculous....

No, dobylino, 5 months is too old. Sorry!

However, Delta would like to assure you that floppy ears are also quite fun.



Sammisdad, I think there are people on the forum who have had the laser crops done, hopefully they will chime in.

healing time is much faster, suppose to be less painful.

laser is relatively new as a tool that vets use to crop ears, when i was looking for a cropper, there was only 1 or 2 that just started using laser in there practice. From what I was told is the recovery is way quicker as the laser lets the ears heal much faster, less scarring too

I guess it depends on where you live, here in Phoenix there have been vets using laser to declaw cats, crop ears, and other surgeries for over 8 yrs. I know it has been around for at least 10 years. The laser are expensive, I have priced them out for my vet in the past. That being said many vets still do not have them.
