How long for results?

I just started sprinkling gelatin on my 5 month olds food so his ears can come up any estimate on when results will start showing?

Great pic...good looking pup....he doesn't look 100% GSD to me......ears may never stand regardless he's still the same dog-- ears up or ears down

My thought, too, was that your pup could be a mix. If that is the case, there is no way to guess what his ears will do.

Feeding gelatin is no guarantee that the ears will stand. It may help, it may not. There is no way to know. If you feed gelatin and the ears come up, you might assume that it helped. You might not feed it and they come up anyway. There is no research to prove it one way of the other, but it won't hurt.

He's a cute pup. Enjoy him the way he is no matter what his ears do.

years ago they used to sell gelatin to women who wanted long strong fingernails. So maybe your dog's nails will grow instead. I hope your pup's ears go up but right now, he is absolutely adorable. He looks like a happy guy.
