Can you? Probably. It would be 1) horribly cruel; 2) a waste of time, and 3) really stupid - pit bulls do NOT traditionally have docked tails, and the ear cartilage is already set, so you'd just have chopped off, limp ears. So, better to use the money for spay/neuter instead.

No responsible vet would do either.
The pup is much too old for both procedures. Perhaps you could make a vet appt for a spay or neuter though.. that's money well spent!

at four months it's too late to crop your dogs ears. like someone else said, no reputable vet would do the procedure. the earlier something like this is done, the better. someone, also said that tail docking is not traditional for pit bulls. it always kills me when i see a pit with a docked tail. i don't know what your reasoning is for doing this, i have a pit and she's completely natural. if you're trying to make your dog look tougher (not saying that's wrong) just know that many many true dogmen (guys who fight their dogs) DO NOT crop their dogs. none of them dock.
