Ear Cropping

Ear cropping is a common surgical procedure which involves removing a portion of a dog’s ears in order to achieve a specific look. Many dog owners choose to have their pups’ ears cropped, either to remain consistent with the breed or simply out of personal preference. The breeds most often associated with cropped ears include Boxers, Great Danes, Schnauzers, American Pit Bulls, Staffordshire Terriers, Dobermans and Miniature Pinschers.

Whatever the reason, it’s important that ear cropping surgeries are handled by a skilled professional who is specially trained and experienced in performing these delicate procedures. Our lead veterinarian has over 35 years of experience with this procedure!

At Brentwood Animal Hospital, we offer professional ear cropping services for dogs between the ages of 8-12 weeks. Our doctors and support staff will take every precaution to ensure that your pet’s procedure is carried out as safely and successfully as possible. This includes conducting thorough pre-surgical screening and pre-anesthetic testing to ensure that your dog is healthy enough to undergo the procedure. Following surgery, we’ll be there to provide guidance and support during your pet’s recovery.

Have a specific cut and style in mind? Feel free to bring in a photo of your preferences and we’ll do our best to accommodate your requests. Call Brentwood Animal Hospital today to learn more about our professional ear cropping services.
