Yep, good place to start. I used the powered form, it was easier to mix in. Just ask the health food person that you want Calcium Ascorbate powder, not ascorbic acid powder. Easier for dogs to use in their systems

Well if it's only been a month since the crop was done I wouldn't worry about it. Just keep taping them. I read it can take months for some. That's one of the reasons I couldn't get a Dobie... taping for so long just sounds so tedious and I don't like the natural look as much.

It is a tad obnoxious, but to actually own a Doberman its worth it. I just really want his ears to stand, plus Vitamin C is probably good for him anyway. I heard it can help with the prevention of pano.

If he is four months old I'm not surprised the ears aren't standing. You will likely be tapping until he is at least 8 months old. Some people have to tape until after a year. One month post surgery is not enough time for the ears to stand for good unless you got a pit bull length crop.

Help with my Doberman..

I think I had to tape my Dobe's ears until she was 7-8 months old. I took them down every few days and re-taped them. She was amazingly good about it, which was a bonus.
