Hello, I'm looking for good vet to crop my puppies ears, they're 10 Weeks old. I've seen Dr Jezbera in Riverside was recommended but he do not take appointments for ears crop during Covid 19. Does anyone know a good vet in Los Angeles area who is still practicing ears crop during the pandemic ? With a reasonable price as I have 2 puppies..
I went hunting for the name of the vet in Pasadena and finally got a hit on my third try working with the search screens
The vet is in Pasadena works or at least worked three years ago at Rose City Vet in Pasadena. The vet's name is Dr Bliefer and she was trained by Dr LaBounty who retired several years ago and he was for many years one of the go to vets in southern California to do GOOD show crops.
I am familiar with Dr LaBounty's crops--they were very nice--among some of the best in California. Before he retired he put up posts in all of the Dobe forum and list offering to train any vet who wanted to learn how to crop Dobermans--explained in those posts that he was going to retire in a couple of years and there were not a lot of vets who really did good show crops on Dobermans.
I don't have a phone number for Rose City Vet/Clinic but I looked it up via Google back when I was first contacted by a puppy owner whose crop was done by Dr Bliefer. So I have actually seen at least one of her crops and it was very good--so I don't hesitate to recommend her.
Good luck and you need to get going on it--don't know if she is cropping during the COVID-19 but I work for a vet clinic in Portland, OR and we recently opened up for more than just emergencies and are now starting to do annual exams and non-emergency surgeries like spays and neuter. (No crops--none of our vet even know how to crop and the ones who know anything about posting learned it from me and my Dobe puppies and our bookkeeper and her Boxers.
The bottom line is that most vets who crop won't crop puppies later than 12 weeks. Good luck on this--there just aren't many vets who do good crops on Dobes--and some of the ones who have done hundreds of crops and tell you they have been cropping for years have done very few Dobes and mostly have experience with the kind of crops done on pit bulls.
I'll keep my fingers crossed for you and the Pasadena Vet.
