Where can i take my dog to get her ears clipped?
A dogs ear hair should be clipped by a professional dog groomer or veterinarian practice.
Cosmetic surgery on dogs ears and tails are procedures banned by most canine societies these days. Such mutilation is unlikely to be performed by veterinarians who genuinely care about the animals under their knife.
If the dog you're asking about is a small white dog (a West Highland White Terrier), the answer is no, its ears were not clipped. That breeds' ears are naturally small, pointy, and stand straight up.
Mostly for stetic. The myth that pitbulls get the ear clipped for fighting is only a myth. Several other breeds gets the ears clipped.
The recommended age is 8 week old. I have a friend that is a veterinian and he clips his dog ears new borned. Exceeding 3 months will have a painfull recuperion.
Unless there is a medical reason then they should not be clipped at all. This is done for the vanity of the owners and not for the benefit of the dog.
no they don't have to be but you should check with the westies vet to see if s/he needs to have their ears clipped most times they don't
Take the dog to a vet. Now.
NO. Take your dog to a vet if he is resisting to have his nails clipped. If the dog is reacting to the clippings as if he were in pain then you might be cutting too short. If he just has a fear of getting his nails clipped than take him to the vet or a groomer to have it done.
After cropping, dog's ears are stitched by the veterinarian and the owner is usually supplied with pain medication to give the dog. The ears will then need daily dressing to keep them clean and in the correct position. After a few monoths they will have healed.
It matters where you get them clipped.
take it to a vet.
If you mean the little chunks that are out of their ears sometimes, those are from cat fights.
Take your dog to the vet for a health checkup with is free, then tell them your problem. They will give you dog drops for ears.
Antibiotic ointment is usually safe for dogs. On clipped ears you can use it if there is no infection or open wounds. If these are present, you should take them to the Vet to get proper care and medication.
The term 'ears of a dog' is 'a dog's ears'.
Traditionally ear cropping was used to prevent dog's ears from becoming torn in fights. Today the operation is performed for cosmetic purposes - to make the dog look more fierce or for showing. Supporters of the operation claim that it prevents ear infections and mites.
This is a matter of personal choice. The operation is illegal in the UK but still legal in some states. Miniature Pinschers can be shown with or without cropped ears but most judges prefer those with cropped ears. Supporters of the operation claim that it prevents ear infections and mites but others say that it is inhumane to put a dog through unnecessary surgery. The ears will take a few months to heal but your… Read More
Infection, please take dog to vet
No, unless you don't want them to have huge ears, because they almost ALWAYS stand up straight and they are ALWAYS huge, like bat ears. Take it from someone who has a 1 1/2 year old Boston Terrier. He has HUGE ears. Really really big ears. I wouldn't recommand doing that though.
He has dog ears, since he is an Inu, or Dog, hanyou, or half demon.
Big dogs have big ears so they can hear well. It would look funny if a big dog had small ears. If a big dog had little ears and a little dog had big ears they would both look funny.And I now this stuff because I have a little dog and a big dog.
The earliest clipped, the faster to heal. I knew a person that clipped his dogs ears a week after they were born but he was a veterinarian. There are breed that 6 months is recommended but that does not concern us. Mostly a two months is recommended for cutting puppies ears and the after care is a factor in healing of those ears. First the sutures should be removed by not more than seven days… Read More
Yes, dogs do have ears.
You should give the dog whatever the vet perscribes you when you take it there to get its ears checked.
Because it has flexible ears!
The price for ear cropping is usually between $250 and $350.
It was a corn dog
Possibly ear mites. You should take the poor thing to the. Vet
Try mixing the medicine with a treat (ie. Wrap dog treat and pill with beef ears)
the fact is that dog ears have a large variety in which they could hear better
Only if your dog has the power to move it's ears easily and if they are long enough. I for one have seen my dog do it as a normal thing.
You should know because you take you dog to the vet every once in a while... If not, then not will you be a bad dog owner ( no offense ) but if you think so just take her/ him to the vet and see what they say.
dogs ears are longer and they can hear more
No it doesn't hurt a dogs ears if it did the dog would pull it's ears back and run away from the whistle
it means your dog is sick, probably in its ears. You should take your dog to a veterinarian or to an animal health clinic; a discharge from its ears could well be something very simple and easily fixed but could become a major problem if left undiagnosed and untreated.
take your dog to the vet, is the ears are warmer than they should be, than your dog could possibly have a slight fever, but is the dog is vomiting or coughing up hair balls, and or having the need to go to the rest-room more than usuall than your definatly want to get the dog to a Vet. A.S.A.P
When a dog has cold ears, it could mean a number of things, if you haven't already, bring your dog inside and keep it warm. Dogs ears are sensitive so do not rub them, it may hurt your dog. Once your dog is inside, check his ears again. Are they still cold? If so it may meet he has bad circulation or heart problems. If the dog has long ears he may have dipped them… Read More
On their head!
None no dog has 44 ears.
Take your dog to a place where it is warm and you and your dog can stay there until the 2 of you are warm enough. If it gets to hot and the two of you can go to a place where it is cool.
they lick eachothers ears because the ears aren't clean
because he is a half DOG demon
you take it to the vets. when its nails are long
Usually this means the dog is feeling sad/depressed/apologetic - spending some quality time with the dog may fix this. However, if you are referring to a dog with cropped erect ears that now has ears falling down, there's nothing wrong - the ears just went back to what they were before people messed with them.
Shaking can be a sign of several problems in a dog: fever, pain, anxiety, low blood glucose, or neurologic problems. If your dog isn't acting right you should take him to your vet. Having cold ears doesn't necessarily mean anything in particular.
Dogs ears should not smell at all. Every second day I smell my dogs ears and it sounds crazy, but I own a Bichon Frise X that is prone to ear infections so I have to very aware of when one of her ears acts up. I first take my dog to the vet and then get a herbal flushing solution to flush my dogs ears out and of course have antibiotic drops. Get your… Read More
