Default Just set up a ear crop appointment for the pup, but...
They can't get me in until the 31st of March. My pup just turned 11 weeks last friday. Now is that to late or will it be fine?

I've read in a reputable APBT web site that the ideal time is between 4 to 8 months,which is a lot older than I always thought when I would crop my Doberman pup's ears.

it will be fine. most vets wont do it after 15 or so weeks. you should make it under the 'deadline'. take good care of ur pups ears.

Bully breeds don't go through the same process as Dobermans go through with their ear cropping jobs. Usually Pitbull terriers get shorter, easier to manage crop jobs. 15 weeks seems fine.

i had one of my dogs done at 6 months. the main reason my vet wont do a grown dog. it is the aftercare gets really difficult. a pup can be managed but a grown dog will give you a fight to clean them up. you have to remove scabs daily. a pup will cry about it, a dog will do more then cry........

tanks was done at 4 months..... just keep a eye on him and don't let him scratch his ears.oh and if u haven't already make sure your vet knows exactly how you want the ears to look give him a picture of a dog u want the ears to look like , dont let him pick the look for your dog,alot of vets that don't do a lot of pits some times will want to make the ear to long.so go in prepared! good luck

When tazer was that age I made the appointment, but I couldnt go through with it. Now im glad I didnt. I think pitty ears give em much more personallity IMO.
I think your pup will be fine. how many thousands of others have had it done at that age and had no probs? your fine.

that's a good point. my vet has a choice of cuts available. he shows you about 6-8 different dogs with ears done by him, and lets you make the choice. and your tank is a great looking dog.

I was wondering what was too old, too. Because when I was at the vet the other day... some woman had a pit bull that looked 2-3 years old and was trying to get her ears cropped. :O

I think 15 weeks is the norm, though. So, it should be fine.

if a vet did an ear job on an adult dog, without it being an emergency( like if one of the ears was ripped off) , that dr. is out for the dough, or just doesnt care. that is way too old.
