Description: An externship opportunity to work with veterinarians who perform show quality and breed standard ear crops. Students will be exposed to the surgical, anesthetic, and analgesic considerations required for this procedure. Safe and state of the art anesthesia and analgesia will be emphasized. Students will be exposed to needs for good patient after care, healing and posting for final aesthetic outcome. The standard for the Doberman Pinscher breed will be emphasized but other breeds may also be seen as patients to provide as many opportunities to observe the procedure as possible for veterinary extern students.
