    Looking for cropping in VA MD NC

    I'm willing to drive anywhere in VA, NC, or MD to get my pups ears done. I have heard good things about Dr. Bill in NC.. is they anyone who could speak about him?

    Thanks!

    I will most likely be using Dr. Bill for his ears, I've heard so many good things about him. I've heard mixed reviews of Pender.

    My breeder is unsure if her vet will be able to do the crops for this litter because he is relocating his pratice at the moment, so I may have to have him cropped when he gets here.

    Thanks everyone.

    I second this recommendation and love Dr. Johnson! He is awesome. He'll ask you to bring "head shots" of ears you like. I got super anxious the morning of the surgery. He found out I'm a med student, and was like, "So, I'm guessing you would be more comfortable watching the surgery than sitting in the waiting room." OMG TOTALLY! He let me watch and listed every medication he administered. I was very comfortable with everything, and really happy I chose him.

    If you're a Redskins fan, you'll be happy to know Chris Cooley's wife brought their dog in after his/her ears had a bad crop somewhere else and he helped them out.

    He will ask you to use neosporin post-op, but I used Gold Bond Powder, thanks to DOL advice. I used a different method of posting than the one he recommends. Shh, just don't tell him that if you end up seeing him!

    FYI, I think he is going out of town in a week or so for vacation. If you call Pender, ask for Dr. Johnson's voicemail, and he will get back to you. It's how he does it.

    Most of the time reputable breeders will only use their vets to crop the pups that they have bred before leaving to their new homes.

    Personally, I'd drive to New Jersey. Dr. Sophia Koster does gorgeous show crops!

    I had a different experience than the above poster at Pender and was unimpressed.

    I've also heard great things about Dr. Bill in NC.

    I chose not to crop, but I could ask my breeder who she uses.
