I was worried about my pup's ears when she was 4 months old and they didn't look like they were getting any closer.
~At that point, we started giving her gelatin in her wet food I think 3-4X/week (I forget exactly).
~She was basically getting a new bully stick every other day for a month.
~She would get a huge raw bone about 4 times a week. The package said not to give them more than 2 per week but she was a HORRIBLE nipper/chewer and I needed relief.
~We also gave her freeze dried chicken necks. (I've read you are suppose to give it to them raw).
I think all those things together helped but I believe the chewing helped the most. She felt like chewing more than usual around that time frame, lost and grew in all her incisors, and one ear went up 2 weeks later and by 5 months both were up. Its probably too soon to tape. My friends pup is 8 months old now and they just started taping one ear and it looks like its going to stay up. Give it at least another month or two.
