Starting posting at 14 weeks

All,

We got her ears cropped just before 10 weeks old and she was a slow healer. She needed to go back for extra stitches a week after the crop and now, one day before her 14 week birthday is the first day we can start to post.

Will her ears still stand? Id say her crop is on the short/medium side.

Thanks

There are too many variables to simply say yes or no. It is possible that they will stand, but I would not have let them flop for 4 weeks. One issue will be if the edges have "drawn"? If they have and they are curled up, you may need to straighten the edges out. This a fairly painful one time treatment before you start posting them.

I would recommend you go to an ear cropping specialist or an experienced breeder to assist. Where has the breeder of the puppy been during this ordeal, or are they of no help?

Good Luck.

In general, I think you can get ears up on a puppy who was cropped just before 10 weeks and wasn't healed enough to post until nearly 14 weeks.

Mostly it means that you may be posting a little longer than if the pup had been cropped earlier and was ready to post (no scabs left) three weeks or so after the cropping.

The vet wouldnt crop until 9 weeks and then everything I read said not to post until the stitches were out and the ears were healed. I guess we will see what we will see.

Thanks yall.

Post the ears and feed them raw chicken feet and cottage cheese, sardines and oyster. That's calcium and collagen support.

If you are consistent with keeping them posted and always put them right back up after taking them down, they should stand.
