Is there a vet that will fix ear croppings after 5 months

Did your dog's vet refuse to? I think that ear croppings are supposed to be done at around 4 months and that later isn't good for them.
Not that I agree with ear-cropping in the first place.
I don't have a problem with tail cropping though, as it is done when the dog is only a few days old so he can't feel much pain and it doesn't do any damage at that age.

That would be very painful for your dog. I would suggest you leave his ears alone, it is a very painful procedure even when done at the proper age. Do you really want to put your pup through this...it is not worth it.

Do you mean fix a botched ear cropping?...Regardless I would leave the dog's ears alone!...There is no reason to put him through a cropping or fixing a botched crop because of your preferences!!
& the whole "cropping is for health reasons" thing?...Bull!...I have 4 dogs with big floppy ears & as long as I clean them periodically there is not problem!
