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?

Have you seen this section? Ears Up?????? - German Shepherd Dog Forums

And there is a recent post with someone who had success with an older dog --> Cheap solution to fix broken ears in an ADULT GSDs.

Good luck

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.


if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.
