Re: BreatheRight Strips for ears

I use tampons for their ears. Use surgical glue to keep them in and then rap tape around their ears, but make sure that you support the ears by rapping aroung the other ear. This prevents the troubled ear from laying down because of the weight. after 6 days remove tape and let air for 1 day and repeat this proceedure again. Our Otto needed 3 weeks for the lazy ear to stand completely

yes they are , they come in white or tan colour and come in different lengths , small/med and large depending on how big your GSD ears are depends on what you should buy, i had the small/medium and seem to be ok but i may invest also in the next size up as well

Re: BreatheRight Strips for ears

False eyelash glue works. I just put some around the edges of the breath rite strip and it would stay in Kyra's ears for about 5 days. I started using the strips when Kyra was about a year and 1/2. She is 5 years old now and both ears are standing even though they are still soft. I no longer have to use the strips!

Good luck

Re: BreatheRight Strips for ears

Well, i put them in but it just looks like her ears, or at least her left, my right, looks really heavy, here r some close-ups...

This one looks like it will do well...


This one looks like it may have some trouble, maybe I should relocate the strips??

Re: BreatheRight Strips for ears

I always just put one large strip in each ear right at the crease, toward the outside of the ear. Kyra was over a year when I started doing this and she would hold her ears up on her own when she was interested in something. I think the important thing is to play with the strips on your own and see when they seem to bring the ear up. I did this at first and did not use glue until I had a pretty good idea where it would make the ear stand!! The left ear looks good. On the right ear you might want to move the strip up some, over the crease until the tip of the ear comes all the way up. Hope this helps.

Re: BreatheRight Strips for ears

At what age would you consider starting this?

My pup will be 12 weeks old on Tuesday.

Ears seem floppy.

It can't hurt right?
