  1. Ear Wrap

    Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hello All! My puppy Zeus had his ears cropped on January 10th. His stitches came out this past Monday, and the ear rack that they put on fell off yesterday ( I have pictures of his wreck in an earlier post). The vet office told us to bring him in to get his ears rewrapped once it fell off, so...
  2. New Ears! Crop Job

    Puppy Corner
    Zeus is home from the vet! Here are pictures of his crop. He was just cropped yesterday. I really don't think this do-dad on his head is going to last very long... he keeps shaking his head and/or scratching at it (I've been stopping him when I catch him doing it. Took the day off from work so I...

  4. When do I stop posting?

    Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hi when I talked to the local vet about crop style I asked for a short crop, what he got was a lot longer than what I expected of a short crop so I'm still posting at 5.5months old. Ears seems to be standing correctly when in an alert state. What worries me is a sort of "breakpoint" about half...
  5. Doberman Puppy's Ears are pointing inward

    Ear Cropping and Posting
    Got my doberman puppy's ears cropped when she was about 13-14 weeks old. I went with the medium short crop. Most of the time they stand up perfectly fine but when she is super excited or something REALLY has her attention they point inward. The vet is saying this is normal and they look fine...

  7. Update on Hudson!

    Puppy Corner
    Hello everyone! I just wanted to post an update on Hudson! His ears are turning out much better now, I think I just wasn't pulling up while taping before. I'm not a fan of how much bell he has at the bottom, but I suppose he will grow into his ears later on. Anyway, he's 15 weeks old today...

  11. Pockets?

    Ear Cropping and Posting
    Harch is 5.5 months old, has lost all his teeth & for the most part keeps his ears standing nicely when out of posts (not for long, just between tapings) I'm convinced he has pockets, but can't actually figure out where they are? I've posted with a bumper, but I don't think it's doing anything...
  12. HELP with CROPPING. WHERE? HOW?

    Ear Cropping and Posting
    After purchasing my doberman puppy (ears uncropped) I found out that ear cropping is illegal in Manitoba. :mad: I'm willing to take a drive to Ontario or Saskatchewan but I was also unaware that most places limit the cropping to 12 weeks of age! She's now 11 weeks. I understand the cartilage...

    Ear Cropping and Posting
    My puppy recently had his ears done and they look good. The vet seems to have done a great job. She told me that I need to restrict Zuma's exercise for 15 days. I didn't question it at the time but he gets really restless when he doesn't get a walk and play time outside. I'm supposed to keep him...

    Just got home with my puppy after picking him up from the vet where he got his ears done. His ears look good, not bleeding much and they are posted with a bit of styrofoam and he has an E-collar on. The vet told me to leave him in a dark and quiet place so he could rest. So I did but he just...

    Ear Cropping and Posting
    Hello everyone, I am new to this forum but would love some of the advice of you guys. I just recently purchased my puppy doberman, Louie, and because of extraneous circumstances (very long and scary story) we couldn't crop his ears until now, and he is 17 weeks old. Now, if I were to crop...

    Ear Cropping and Posting
    I'm "rescuing/adopting" a 6mo old dobe-baby from a soon to be deployed soldier. He is cropped and docked, but the ears aren't standing all of the time. Only when alert or excited.
