We are professional doberman pinscher breeders and when we find a vet that we like, we want to share the knowledge with other dog owners.

For several years we have been working with an exceptional vet in Kinston.  He is Dr Ray Randall of the Riverbank Animal Hospital and he is very knowledgeable on doberman health.  We also have him for our doberman ear crops.  He has a wonderful manner with our animals and he does the best job for us.  When he cuts our dobermans' ears, they are the correct length and they stand after they are posted.  Of all the dogs he has cropped for us, every one has been perfect.

Dr Julie Garren is now the owner of Riverbank Animal Hospital, and is following in the footsteps of Dr Ray Randall, who is now semi-retired.  Dr Garren has done some outstanding ear crops for us, and for our puppy buyers.  Ernie and I HIGHLY recommend Dr Julie Garren for ear cropping of doberman ears.

We highly recommend these vets to anyone with a dog who needs an ear crop, from personal experience.

You can find Dr Randall, DVM and Dr Julie Garren, DVM at:
