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 Louie's ears, it would be by Dr. Labounty, who I have heard is one of the best in the country. At the office he said it wouldnt be too late and as long as we went with a pet or medium crop they would stand fine (we would go to his office every week to retape the ears). Should I be hesitant or should I just trust his expertise?
