Ear Cropping

Dr. Limpach has been doing ear crops for over 20 years. She looks at each animal as an individual. So, no crop is identical to another dog. She will give you the best crop you desire and the best crop for your pet. Crops can range in pricing dependent on style and breed. 

Every animal will need a pre-surgical examination a day or two before the surgery will be done.

Contact Angelcare Animal Hospital in Racine WI to schedule your examination.

Dogs need to be 8-16 weeks old.  No crops will be done after 16 wks of age.

** 8-12 weeks is highly preferred for the best surgical experience for your pet. **

Ready for Surgery: Doberman

The end of surgery -- and post-surgery in cup: Great Dane
