ear hematoma
my gsd had a hematoma. they put in a drain and kept it in 3 weeks. his ear is at half mast. will it go back up or do i need to do something to help it along. this is our 3rd german shepherd and i have never had that problem with ears. our first dog we had from a pup and she lived to 13 1/2. our second we got from a rescue at 9 and he lived till 14 1/2 now sabre we also got from a rescue and he was 3. he is now 7.

My female had the same and the ear is now folded in the middle 6 months later.

I've heard you can use breath strips to help hold them up. You could probably try that. This is not the same, but, Perseus got stung by a wasp and his ears swelled up making them fall. I was a afraid they wouldn't go back up, but they did.

i am trying the breath strips. one side of his ear is fine the otherside has a couple of kinks in it. the breath strips are holding it up but i am not sure what will happen when i take them off. we will just have to see. he is still my baby no matter what.
but he does look more regal with both ears up.
