    Risks and Complications of Ear Cropping ...

    Placing a pet under general anesthesia will involve a minimal risk. The safety of modern anesthesia has increased substantially with increased knowledge, modern equipment and modern anesthetic drugs. We will discuss these recommendations with you when you drop off your pet on the day of his/her surgery.

    If the ears are improperly cared for infection can occur at the incision site, which will delay healing time; however, this is uncommon as long as medication is given according to our directions. Damage to edge of the ear from scratching will generate scar tissue formation altering the final outcome.

    A very small percentage of ears will never stand properly because the cartilage supporting them is too weak. Unfortunately this complication cannot be foreseen because the ear cartilage develops and strengthens as the puppy grows.
