Since she could still be teething at 5.5 months, I would wait until she is 6 months old. This article has some good suggestions:

First thanks for your reply

secound yes i have read this articale and it is one of some who made confusion to me .
they wrote " Its not uncommon for ears not to be up until 4 1/2 to 5 months of age "
then three paragraphe later ther wrote " If a pup does not have his ears up by 5 months I strongly recommend that you get involved with taping your dogs ears."

so if it is uncommon why they sugguest to tap if it is not have her ears up by 5 month ?


some others said if they come up for a minute or less the will be come up always
what is true ?

I agree with you that the advice is confusing and one wouldn't want to tape too soon which isn't good. Since the ears do come up then go down, I think she is still teething. I would wait until 6 months or 6 1/2 months and see how the ears are doing.

i like your idea and i think she is still teething ( cann't you tell from the photo ? ) , but if i wait till 6 1/2 months is it will be a late time or it is ok ?

She is a pretty girl, that's for sure. I wouldn't be too worried yet. Her one ear looks solid.

What exactly do you feed her?

Nile Pharma - Tri-B Ampoule

Yes, it would be safe. Since it is used by gsd breeders in your area, you may want to consider giving it to her.

i started give her a medicin called Decal B12 , it is Calcium , Vitamin D3 , Vitamin B12 , they used it to as a supplement and i used it insetd of the one i told you becouse it contains Calcium , but i started to get nervus abut her ears since the day they where up as i told you they never come up both again except yesterday the were up for a a minute, don't know what else to make , will wait another two weeks till she is 6 an half month and put a glow to the ears . or what you think ?

just want to to tell you that i found Tri-B breeders use it in your country too , and some sell it on amazon , the difference is breeders here use it as a injuction

Thank you for the information on Tri-B. Since your gsd is 6 months and her ears have only come up once, I would be nervous also and would decide to tape them now rather than wait.
