Will this process work on an older dog, she will be 3 in April, soft ears im convinced because she had underlying health issues that were unknown to us at the time her ears would have normally gone up. Since being diagnosed in May and treated, back at a good weight, do you think it may still work?

still likes to chew on Nylabone etc...on a great diet.

or should we just let this go because of her condition and age?

Hi! Is it possible to fix my german shepherd's broken ear after a surgery? He is 6 years old. The surgery was in July 2014. I know it's too late to think of fixing this ear, but the vet told me that it will recover in some months,but it hasn't imroved at all. Or is there a surgery,that could fix his ear?

If she's all ok now, I can't see any harm in trying. But remember you will have to keep the ears up for a good 5-6 months and take a look to see if the ear seems to be stronger. If it does get any stronger then you're going to need to keep it in for another 5-6 months to make sure the ear will be strong enough to stand on its own.

It's been more than a year and a half since we took the card out of Enakai's ear and it's not gone down since. Fingers crossed if you do try it, it works for you. Best of luck

Hi Dolf,

I'm not sure if there's any surgery to fix the ear. However, as long as there's no medical problem with the ear, there's no harm in trying it. I remember speaking to a vet about Enakai's ear and he said there's no chance that it will be up now since she was too old at the time but we still managed to fix it with this simple procedure. It's a long but cheap solution and I think it's worth trying it. Just make sure to regularly check the ear for any infection. Best of luck and please let me know if you do try it how it turns out.
