BT puppy cauliflower ear?

My baby brand new puppy has cauliflower ear!We we’re all prepared to get started with pupp taping but after her visit to the vet for her 3 round shots the vet told us she would have permanent crinkle ear!Just curious if anyone’s had a similar problem and would cropping be and alternative thanks!

  • Cropping is a no go and totally destroys all breed standards and i dont think people in this forum would recommend doing this to your dogs ear when there are no health risks attached its only a crinkled ear and its not bothering your bully so dont go removing ears purely because of looks i would far rather a bull terrier with a crinkled ear than cropped ears i don't believe it suits the breed at all its entirely upto you but i think what i said will go for many in this forum cropped ears is highly undesirable in this breed
  • Thanks for the feedback I’m not really worried about I think it makes her look special after all
  • Exactly all bullys have there own little quirks and that's life please don't crop her ears just for the sake of looks!

    Trust me, she will be beautiful no matter if her ears are up or down. Taping is one thing, but I would not crop the ears. This is my personal opinion. But you will love her no different with floppy or crinkly ears. Just look at that cute little face!

    That's cute little girl.

    Best wishes, Bill

    She either had a yeast infection, dirty ears, or banged her ear in order to develop a hematoma. Normally you see that happen on an older dog. However, if a puppy/dog is shaking their head enough they can certainly develop a hematoma. Sadly, these will normally ruin the cartilage in the ear causing it to deform in appearance.
