"Got my pitbull/XL bully pups ears cropped here and they came out great! I
was hesitant at first because it was my first time there but Dr. Goraya
did a great job! I plan on going back soon!"......Mario D (5/19/16)
Dr. Goraya has had a special interest in performing many different surgeries over the course of 30 years. One of his interests are in performing canine ear crops. Dr. Goraya has performed OVER A THOUSAND ear crops and his clients have come from hundreds of miles away due to his expertise and compassionate care.
Ear Crop Qualifications:1) Minimum of 2 to 3 months old. (NOTE: Older dogs considered on a case by case basis.)
2) Proof of first vaccination series. (NOTE: We also offer low cost vaccines.)
Ear crops are commonly done on a variety of breeds such as:- American Pit Bull Terriers
- - Doberman Pincers
- - Miniature Pincers
- - Boxers
- - American Staffordshire
- - Schnauzers
- - Bouviers des Flandres
- - Great Dane
The ear cropping process involves a brief consultation on the morning of surgery followed by the surgery itself. You will be able to pick up your pet the same day. NOTE: It is important to be available for 3 to 4 follow up appointments for suture removal and bandaging.
Who is an ear crop for?
An Ear Crop is a form of cosmetic surgery and therefore is a personal decision. Ear cropping is not right for every dog, and it is not right for every person who owns a dog.We recommend a consult appointment with Dr. Goraya if you are unsure about whether or not to crop.There is a substantial amount of aftercare involved to make sure the ears stand properly.An owner who is not committed to being thorough about the aftercare, should probably not crop their pet. You will need to come back to Pico Rivera Animal Hospital for follow up appointments which are included in our ear crop pricing.
How long does it take for my dogs ears to stand up?
The aftercare is just as important as the surgery for an ear crop. Therefore it is important that you are available to bring your dog in for 3 to 4 taping appointments as needed over the course of approximately 1 month.
How is the pain managed?
During the procedure we will have your pet under general anesthesia where we can manage pain and all their vitals. You will be given antibiotics as well (additional charge) to take home after the procedure.
