Our male is almost 8 months old. The vet we chose included all follow up postings into the price. They change his posts roughly every 7 days. He is our first doberman and ear crop so we really do not have any previous experience. The vet we chose is super nice and caring but they recently had to close for a couple weeks due to covid so we were supposed to do the posts ourselves since he had 1 ear still not wanting to stand. Ours looked ghetto!!! The vet we took him to was a retired ear cropping vet. He showed me that the ears were not cut the same and that is why the ear was having issues. What should I say to our normal vet when they reopen? Is it possible to still correct?

Posts don't have to look pretty as long as they do the job  ;-)

Thank you! I did have a question though at the end but it was cut off so I had to re edit.

Can you post some pics?

I'd want to see pictures also before commenting on the crop itself.

No trying to be rude but by 8 months you really should be familliar enough to be doing the posting yourself. 

You learn best by doing -

This works well if you have no 'helper' and want to work on ears yourself:

That dog is not going anywhere until I am done...

 

Elastikon and plumbing pipe insulation have got to be the greatest things ever for doing Doberman ears.

:)

Elastikon is more or less a conforming stretch bandage with one sticky side. Similar to Kerlix but better... Just the right amount of sticky to do what you want but not so sticky you need solvents / adhesive removers to get get the stuff off without damaging your dog. Greatest thing ever for taping up irregularly shaped doggie parts securely while still allowing those parts to be able to breathe (airflow) and not having to get stuff too tight

Last time I had Dober ears done that particular Vet gave me a few rolls to try out and I was instantly hooked. After doing a few postings with it I was convinced to the point that I bought a case of it to make damn sure I did not run out.
