Ear Cropping

Great Dane
Dr. Limpach has been doing ear crops for over 30 years and looks at each animal as an individual. So, no crop is identical to another dog. Each consultation will ensure you will love your pet's ear crop and receive 5-star service. 
Every animal will need a pre-surgical consult/examination and lab work before the surgery will be done.
