Default 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.

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.
