22 month old GSD with ears still down :(
Hi all!! I have a situation where your advice will be greatly appreciated. I have my amazing 22 month old Pancho and he is the light of my eyes! He's the sweetest ever. Extremely smart and loyal. Just wonderful. One thing though, his ears have not gone up still. They are still flappy and he has never shown any signs that they will go up. The vet said to just let him and I have, but I kind of want his ears up already. I have been reading up on gluing his ears with Tear Mender since apparently this will not irritate his skin. Any thoughts or recommendations?

And there is a recent post with someone who had success with an older dog -->

Good luck

The ears on that dog came up at some point before falling though. Give it a shot but dont get your hopes up

Have you thought about giving him lots of opportunities to chew - as this does help with ears standing up.

Give him some raw meaty bones, or a femur full of marrow, chicken carcass etc.
