      Nevermind, he's in Asheville which is over 6 hours from you...

      Try contacting him anyways, he probably could tell you who to go to. Or even meet up with you to teach you how to properly do it. He's a really, really nice guy and very helpful.

        Question- I hear that's some people (vets) are not taping until after the stitches come out? My vet tapped the day after surgery before he was sent home.... Am I confused?

          I always waited until the stitches came out.

            If tape is covering the sutures, I would personally take the tape off ASAP. If they are taped, but the edges are exposed to the air, then they are fine. No tape should ever cover the sutures.

              The tape isn't on the sutures. And the sutures have great exposure to air the way they are taped. Thanks for the responses... There is always more than one way to skin a cat! (That saying is awful btw)

                That looks fine. Honestly though, I don't think it's necessary to have that entire contraption on the ears while the edges are healing.

                I disagree that there is "more than one way to skin a cat". If the edges are taped, the likelihood of infection is much greater. For a purely cosmetic surgery, it's not fair for the pup to make the risks greater when they don't have to be. It just gives the anti-cropping crowd more to argue about

                  With my "more than one way to skin a cat" comment, it was directed towards the method that "some vets tape (with edges exposed) an some vets don't tape at all until sutures come out.

                    That is serious headgear, but it can't hurt.

                    My last litter had sponges glued to the top of the head and the ears glued across the sponge, edges exposed. There was nothing to keep them from scratching but they didn't try... It worked fine.

                      I hate I've hijacked this thread! Butcher it comes to my babies I would rather be safe than sorry- all it takes is one bad scratch to those ears to do serious damage! It's my responsibility as his owner to make sure he doesn't hurt himself. I really love all if the support and advice from all of you! I'd be lost without DOL!

                        Lol. Did you mean to type "butcher" or was that a typo? If a typo, it's really really fun considering the topic. Haha...

                          Dear Lord! PETA is gonna get me now! No- I didn't mean to put that. Funny how ironic autocorrect can be! And to ocean blue danes- crazy kudos to breeders who crop a litter at a time- granted y'all are prob experts- but I can barely handle one!
