We have collected a list of veterinarians in the United States who have experience in cropping AmStaffs for show purposes. These vets were recommended by many breeders but I have not personally used them, except for my personal vet so please do your own research and make your own decisions on who to crop your puppy. Ear cropping is an art form that takes experience and cannot be done correctly by just any veterinarian. Hopefully this list will help make sure your puppy gets a beautiful ear crop ethically and humanely:
Below is a classic way of taping your puppy’s ears. Issues with older puppies and specific problems may need alterations to the way the ears are taped. Do not allow ear tapes to become wet at any time. If that occurs, take the ears down immediately and let them dry before taping again. Check ears regularly for swelling or odors at the base. Clean ears should be able to stay up for 5 to 6 days at a time and then let them rest for at least one day before taping up again.
