Ear cropping vets in Southern Colorado

Hi,
I have a new dobey puppy, and in about 6 weeks or so he'll need his ears cropped. I know that it is an art form, and that selecting a good vet is vital. I have read other threads for vets in Colorado, but the closest one is 2 and a half hours away from me.. His name is Dr. William Tuthill. He is who I will use if I can't find one closer. Does anybody know of any good vets for Doberman ear cropping that is closer to Trinidad, CO?
Thanks so much!

Does your breeder have any suggestions? Usually the breeder takes care of cropping before the puppies go.to their new homes. How old is your puppy? Ears should be cropped at around 8 weeks.
Hopefully someone else will chime in about good cropping vets.

Dr. Mona Fasth in Golden, CO hands down. She is also a Doberman breeder. Not necessarily southern Colorado, but I would not go anywhere else personally.

I haven't actually picked him up yet he is just now four weeks old.. He is coming from a breeder in Texas. The reason for that is my uncle has gotten all of his dobermans from the same breeder for about 40 years now, and he said I couldn't find a better quality dog as far as looks, bloodlines, temperament, and health goes. So I took his advice and went with a pup from there!! So as you can imagine, their vet is about 10 hours away (eek!). I have read about the vet in Golden, but that is almost 4 hours from me I have heard wonderful things about Dr. Tuthill's cropping ability. He is recommended on multiple websites.. I was just hoping to find a vet that was a little closer than 2.5 hours seeing how gas prices are these days :/

The breeder should be taking care of this for you! It's a red flag that one's not. The thing about good cropping vets is they are few and far between. This is another reason reputable breeders always take care of the cropping before sending their puppies on to new homes; it's too much worry and burden for the new owner.

There are great cropping vets in Texas. Breeder should do this before u get.the puppy. There are also some good breeders in Texas but all of.them would have the litter cropped and the stitches out before puppies leave.
I believe Mona was deployed.

I cannot think of a reputable breeder in Texas who leaves cropping up to the owners. Nope.
I'm sure that all of your uncle's dogs have been great but that doesn't mean that they came from a reputable breeder. Many people feed their dogs horrible foods (Bil Jac, ewe) for years with no problems but that doesn't mean that the dogs are eating a healthy diet.



No dog is at fault for being born into this world.

He has had them cropped on his other litters... Him and his wife are having some serious life issues at the moment that were not expected, and they need the puppies to go to homes as soon as they're fully weened and ready. He is an excellent breeder, but life tends to happen to the best of us- and it usually doesn't take timing in to consideration, unfortunately. So with breeder concerns out of the way, I am just trying to find the best vet for the job that is the closest possible. So far though, it's looking like Colorado Springs.

I'd appreciate it if we can stay on the topic at hand, which is vets in Southern Colorado that can do a nice ear cropping job. I do not have a need for further lectures on "reputable breeders." The subject of this post is not about breeders. I have done my research, I assure you.

I'd call Dr. Fasth's office and ask for a recommendation if she is deployed. Or contact the Doberman Pinscher Club of Colorado. Driving 4 hours is nothing for a quality crop.

Thanks! I'll call her office tomorrow and see if she was deployed or not. If so, I'll ask for recommendations. I definitely want the best for my pup!

We used Dr. Tuthill in the Springs for our boy, and his crop came out beautiful. You can search some of my prior threads for pictures of Arkus.

Best of luck.
