Stark's Vet is having me put a tampon in his ear and wrap it like you see in this pic. He said that it is acting as a splint. Has anyone heard anything about this splint method before? Seems odd to me..
How old is this baby??? I agree with the OP, Mrs. K, don't fiddle-fart around with the ears on babies this young, you and your vet may do more good than harm.
I have not seen the tampon used this way, I read about people using a hair curler. But that book was written in the seventies, when curlers were typical. Does anyone use curlers any more?
But I digress. A good method of clueing is cutting some molefoam in the shape of the ear above the little knotch. Use new skin as a glue to glue the molefoam in the hear and then curve it into shape, with your hands and hold it that way with tape for a few days.
But this pup's ears look like they are doing fine, and I wouldn't weigh down the ear with anything, like this picture.
