Uncropped and Cropped Ears of Miniature Schnauzers

Cropped

« Back to Glossary Index

Cropping is the removal of part of a dog’s ears. The practice is mostly for cosmetic purposes and most veterinarians say there are not good medical reasons for the surgery. Many countries have banned the procedure. Where permitted it is usually done only for certain breeds such as the Pit bull, Doberman Pinscher, Schnauzer, Great Dane, Boxer, and Cane Corso.
