How do you use the strips or glue them into the ear?

the way i did it was to put the BR strips on top of the moleskin. BR strips as more tear mender glue (wait for glue to get tacky b4 sticking on the mole skin) BR strips go on the inside outer edge of the ear. Depending on how thick the ear is you might have to double up on the BR strips.

Good morning! I'm looking at your ear post from 2009, with the moleskin, the purple yard, and the Breathe Rite strips underneath. Did it work out? I'm struggling with a large boned puppy, 6 mo old today, with floppy ears. Looking at lots of options, and yours looks interesting. What ultimately happened with you pup? Thanks!

I have a 6 month old whose ears will stand up independently for a few moments several times a day, usually after a nap. This is our 4th GSD and we never had an issue with ears not standing on their own. I feel his ears will eventually stand but my husband is anxious for them to stand now as all of the litter mates ears have been up for quite awhile now so we are trying the BR strips.

My question is can you put too many in and actually make the ear too heavy? Also do you run the risk of changing the natural shape of the ear by placing the strips in the wrong area?

where exaactly do i put the brethe right strips at in or on the ear, i put them in but she just shakes them out eventually, or i put them on the insides of her ear along the edges, but they either fall out or the ears will still flop, starting to get irritated because they would go up for short periods of time though out the day

I have a 14 week old pup. At 10 weeks his right ear was standing up perfect and the left ear was folding at about half way up.I took him to the vet for his shots and check up, at that time and the vet found that he had a infection in his right. He was treated with ear drops for a week.I took him back to the vet in two weeks and the infection was cleared up . Now the left ear is standing up perfect and the right ear leans to the left now.It stands up but leans over some. At times the right ear stands perfect for a short time.This is my 6th GSD and I've never had a problem with any of my dogs ears till now.Is this common for the ears to do this and do I have anything to worry about?
