If you mean ears cropping then in Europe is usuall to crop puppies around 6 weeks of age or later. Till 4 months it is quite possible. Then is big risk that ears will not stay properly,

Hi Anrine,

LOL! I know excatly what you mean about the bear-bear look! Wink

I have seen 7 weeks old MS puppies in pet shops that are already groomed.

Generally, to maintain the smart Schnauzer look, (we are talking abou the pet cut here..ie. using electric clippers), a MS would have to be groomed every 4-6 weeks. Maximum would be 8 weeks before our MS starts turning into a bear-bear breed!

Hi Xana,

Ear cropping done at 6 weeks? And this is commonly done in Europe? Interesting. All this while, I was under the impression that ear cropping is recommended to be c/out on 10weeks old pups.. Something about fear period..

hi Arthur,
maybe I am wrong. Because in our country is ear cropping banned for 10 years. After all some people still crop their dogs and nobody affects them... So it is possible that I remmember age of cropping worse. I can ask some friend from European country where is ear-cropping possible. Will let you know.

2 months ago we have imported cropped giant schnauzer from Skansen's kennel USA and I have seen video tape by Sylvia HAmmarstrom /Skansen's kennel/. She speaks about cropping in 6 or 7 weeks of age. Well, that's it.

I'll let you know

Thanks.

alrite,The operation for ear cropping was cost RM250..

The other stuff like dressing or cleaning ears u can either done by urself or vet.

RM20 will be charge for each dressing.The dressing is an easy process.Normally first or second time done by vet then the following u can done by urself.

Wrapping ears is depend on schnauzer condition.If her ears able to stand erect without wrap then u can take it off and throw it away.

After operation, my dog drink lots of water..until his stomach become big tummy..But the nurse told me it's normal dun worry..!Haha..

The ears must be kept very clean so it won't have any infection of the incisions.

U must find the vet who reli experience for doing ears cropping cuz the risk do exist !!

Ok...!Cool

Hi Oahams7,

Woud like to seek your advice on the MS ear cropping. My pup at 3 mths old just had her ear cropped 2 days ago here in Penang, and now

she's facing difficulty in adapting to it, coz the 2 sticks are tied at her ears, she felt uncomfortable and shake around, causing 1 of the stick to came out

and dangling around. Did u have any experience on this? her wound is still wet and havent really dry off, with the stiches around the side.

it's really heart breaking to see her suffer in this way any idea how to keep her calm down and feel comfortable? how long will this take

for her to settle down? How long did ur dog recover from the wound and stiches took out? Please advice. Looking forward for your reply asap

thanks alot! Smile



p/s: do u have any good doc to recommend me on his consultation? might need to seek more different opinion, coz i dont think the doc i went

to is pro enough...thats the problem...Unsure

tkahhean,
I love dogs and love dogs' lover too~!
Hope i'll have a puppy as soon as i wish~!
