Ear Cropping & Tail Docking


Quail Ridge Animal Hospital offers surgical tail docking, dew claw removal and ear cropping. We have specific protocols in place to ensure that your puppy is as comfortable as possible during and after these procedures. Tail docking and dew claw removal are performed in three to five day old puppies. Ear cropping is performed under anesthesia in puppies two to four months old depending on the breed.

Dr. Lesli Hewitt-Spears has extensive experience with a variety of different breeds, and length of tail docking and style of ear cropping can be customized based on the breed of your puppy and your personal preference. Call us today for more information or to schedule tail docking, dew claw removal or ear cropping for your litter or puppy.
