Default Puppy bent his ear.....

Crockers ears are beautiful and have been up straight for months. Tonight while playing around he rolls over on his head and yelps. When he sits up one ear is standing straight up and the other ear is laying flat. He's been shaking his head. But has now settled down.

If the ear doesnt' come back up, is there something that can be done. A splint maybe?

Should I give it a day or two to see if it pops back up?

Thanks

What did he roll on to make him yelp? A dog most likely isn't going to just yelp from rolling on their ears.

Remy's ear did that after playing with a dog. I thought maybe the other dog bit something on her ear, but it came back up a week later! Does his ear look like this?

Look inside the ear, it may be an ear infection and rolling on the ear made it hurt.
Dogs often hold their ears down when they have an ear infection.

Thanks for all the advice. The ear was up this am, a little red inside but standing up good and straight.

Crocker is 6 months old. When I sit on the floor he puts the top of his head in my lap and flips himself over.

And yes, he's been fighting an ear infection for well over a month now. Won't seem to go away. So that was probably why he cried.

What did the vet say about the ear? Do you have medication for it?

That's a LONG time to be dealing with an ear infection! I'd be going to another vet pronto. Unresolved ear infections can lead to hearing loss in humans...so I'd assume the same danger is there for dogs. Also, he's obviously having pain from it...so getting another opinion would be in the dog's best interest.
