Ear Cropping (Cosmetic Otoplasty)
Scarlett and CharlieEar cropping is an optional surgery performed to meet breed standards. The optimum time to perform the surgery is between 8 and 10 weeks of age. However, small breeds such as miniature pinschers are able to have the surgery for up to 6 months of age. This procedure is cosmetic and more of an art than a science. Dr. Winter will discuss the preference of the ear size and shape with owners. After surgery, Dr Winter glues the ear to a foam support. Owners are instructed the best method to heal the raw edge. Once it is healed, appointments are scheduled to properly cone the ears. This process trains the ears to stand. The post surgery care is extremely important and required so the ears heal and stand properly. As with all other surgeries, the patient should be dropped off the night prior to surgery so we can perform pre-anesthetic blood work and fast the patient overnight.
