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.
Hopping on this thread way late but same goes for my 12wk old pup. I know the ears need time and it could take up to 6mo old. I’m trying to be proactive though, and I’m worried about the “crease” in both ears. I started using gelatin yesterday in his food and was wondering: if there’s a crease in the ear, is that’s a problem with them going up?
Thank you! So many mixed ear-related things online and I want to make sure I’m doing things right (and/or catching things early). I don’t wanna mess with them too much, taping at 6mo if needed but I hope it doesn’t come to that.
This is my boy Niko, he’ll be 13wks on 3/30. I started giving Knox gelatin two days ago to help his ears stand since he’s been caught in the flying nun phase for about 2wks now. Do they look hopeful? I know it’s hard question to ask cause no one REALLY knows but I figured I’d see what y’all think!
My GSD is 9 months old. I started doing breath right strips and mole skin on her right ear at 8 months as it was having difficulty standing up at rest. The mole skin/ strips fall off and she will sometimes have the ear stand up for a whole day or 2 and then I have to reapply. When we are playing...
Hello I'm going to be adopting this beautiful baby but I wanted to get some thoughts on what breed you think he may be and if his ears will stand. The rescue is putting his age around 3 months. These photos are from a video of him running around so it's hard to tell about his ears! I can also...
It shouldn't be a lengthy thread. I will summarise it in few points.
1. First I would like you to do an exercise. Open your mouth as much as you can considering something big in between your teeth needs to be crushed from your teeth. When you will try to do that you will notice that this...
