It's a long but cheap solution and I think it's worth trying it. Just make sure to regularly check the ear for any infection. Best of luck and please let me know if you do try it how it turns out.

Hi! Is it possible to fix my german shepherd's broken ear after a surgery? He is 6 years old. The surgery was in July 2014. I know it's too late to think of fixing this ear, but the vet told me that it will recover in some months,but it hasn't imroved at all. Or is there a surgery,that could fix his ear?

Will this process work on an older dog, she will be 3 in April, soft ears im convinced because she had underlying health issues that were unknown to us at the time her ears would have normally gone up. Since being diagnosed in May and treated, back at a good weight, do you think it may still work?
still likes to chew on Nylabone etc...on a great diet.
or should we just let this go because of her condition and age?

Update after 7 months
Your very welcome How are your dog's ears? Here is an update of Enakai after 7 months of stopping using the tape. Her ear seems a lot stronger now.

|critterlady||Thank you, so far so good, I haven't noticed any skin irritation from the adhesive and he doesn't seem to mind them being in his ears, so we're going ahead with it, I didn't mind his floppy ears, but when I saw the sores on the creases I knew I had to do something!|

|LynnPritchard||You can do this! Another member and I spent weeks talking on the site and then ultimately on the phone and directly via email, and we have both of our dogs with their ears fully erect. It's a laborious process, but it works!! If you read through all of the posts on this particular site/link, you will see our thoughts and process. She did one way and I did another, but we both achieved success. Please feel free to call me directly on my cell if you like. I'm sure that the other member would be happy to help you as well: Lynn Pritchard 804-241-3053. Good luck and persevere!|

|critterlady||Thank you for posting this video! I'm going to try this on my 9mo old gsd Zeus, I couldn't find the tape you used, I saw someone else post they were using moleskin since they couldn't find the tape, so I used moleskin. Zeus got a sore on the outer part of his ear where it creases and now has a scar from it, the inner part of his other ear got sore at the crease, my vet told me to use antibiotic ointment and there wasn't much else to do, so I hope this works! Zeus' ears have been up and down, but never for very long, I've included some pictures of him prior to applying the fix and after, really praying this works!|

Thanks so much for this! I just got a 20 month old bitch and her left ear will go up sometimes, but is usually down, like the first pic of your girl. I'm going to give this a go.
