Liesje I can't imagine a cone would break cartilage. My dogs play pretty rough, even play-ripping at each other's ears and I've never seen or heard of this happening.

A hematoma may cause a fold that won't stand again.

If that's not true then I wasted a lot of time yelling at strangers who always go straight for the ears when petting my pup hahah

I don't understand why people go for the ears anyway. Just puts you in a good biting range from my perspective.

If you can keep an eye on her and have properly taught the 'leave it' command, then you can remove the collar when you are home so she leaves the incision alone.

Can this harm her ears?

We just got our gsd spayed on Tuesday and she has to wear an e-collar because she has already irritated the incision by licking. My question is will this harm her ears and make them be floppy? They are starting to get a little red in the area where they fold down when she moved her head. Her ears have been since 4 months that I know of and they have had no problems before.
