i am picking up my puppy june 18. he was scheduled to have his ears done june 7 by the breeders vet. Her name was Mcbride i believe, but unfortunately she had an accident and injured her hand. im in need of finding another vet to do the crop. i live in southwest florida. im willing to drive 3-4 hours if someone knows another reputable vet for this crop. thanks.

Wow, sad news abou dr. McBride. She did Roxy's ears. What does your breeder have to say. Where is the breeder taking the puppies to have the ears done?

i didnt ask about any of the other puppies from the litter. he just told me he was sorry and that he is uncomfortable recomending anyone else since she is the only one he was confident with. he just told me what to look for when searching for someone. i just found out today and i have been looking online, but i figured i could get some good information here too. hopefully get lucky and someone has had good results with a vet in my area.

I would let the breeder make the arrangements as this is something you shouldn't be burdened with.

Sorry to hear about Dr. McBride.
This!!!

Any reputable breeder will make a real effort to have all their puppies cropped by a doberman ear crop specialist. Maybe you should make arrangements to get a puppy from another litter instead?

funny thing is when i decided to choose a doberman for a pet i did a lot of research on them. then i found this site, which obviously is specific to the breed. ive read tons of posts just trying to learn as much about these animals as i can. its unfourtunate that most threads go in the same direction. i choose a good breeder. my choice. they must be ok if they are only using the best vet for doberman surgery. he did give me a few other names, but said that was up to me. not his first choice. i didnt ask anything about my breeder. i asked if anyone had any information on a vet. why is it people on a site that share a common admiration for dobermans are unwilling to share information, but are more interested in trying to punk people for not knowing everything there is to know? Is anyone willing to give me a bit of useful information, or should i look to another doberman forum?

Punk people? I don't even know what that means. Good grief...

Good, reputable breeders make sure stuff like ear cropping is taken care of for new owners. Period. They fly croppers in or take the entire litter to another acceptable cropper. I took a few minutes to do a search FOR YOU and the only cropper ever recommended in Florida is Dr. McBride.

Good luck with your puppy and finding a good cropping vet.

I would suggest that you contact your local or state Doberman club...speak to the secretary or president and ask for their recommendation for excellent "show crop" surgeon who specializes in Dobermans. Even if you don't want a long show crop, you should get a skilled, artistic crop. Then visit that vet and look at pictures! You should do fine and have a great outcome. I wouldn't necessarily use a breeders vet anyhow, unless you love their dogs' ears. (I understand it isn't an option in this case for you anyhow) I personally want the best available...it is a most important decision that I want choice in, and different people have different preferences. You do want experience, expertise, and an artist who can match a crop to the pups head and face...plus you need to love his/her work. GOOD LUCK :)

Would say I agree with you , that pup represents that breeder in so many ways and for him/her not to care where you get the ears cropped is a big no no on there behalf
