Moving on to Nasal Strips...where do I place them?

It seems it is time to move on to Nasal strips as the base of his ears and standing very well and his crop isn't too long. I have bought Nasal Strips and eyelash/skin glue. where exactly do I place the nasal strips on the inside of his ear? left? right? midde?

Do I have the right materials? Does anyone have pictures so I can see where they are supposed to be placed?

If you look closely at this photo of Lola, you will see the Breath Right Strips in her ears.
The strips just support the top part of the ear. If the ear is not standing strongly at the base, then you will want to keep posting.

We use the knock-off Walgreens brand nasal strips because they were quite a bit cheaper than Breathe Right strips. They are shaped differently than the classic Breathe Rite strips - kind of wider and oblong - but come in the extra strength, which is what we use. I shaped the top of it with scissors to match the contour of her ear shape and used Ostobond to glue it in place....




ETA: I use Osto-Bond over the eye lash glue and the stick lasts for a really long time, I end up removing them myself after 5 days or so just to keep them fresh. To remove them I use quite a bit of medical adhesive remover, Unisolve, to preserve her fur. You can purchase both at a medical supply store or if you're a lazy shopper like me - Amazon!

I am currently using the mole foam... at what point should I switch the the BR strips? His ears stand quite well, with just a little leaning inwards to the head on the left ear from about halfway up the ear.

We posted until Remy was about 6.5 months old. How long you post varies from dog to dog. We waited until her ears stood independently w/o posts w/o flopping to know we were done. The very tips of her ears, about an inch, were a little weak/floppy but the base to the near tip were strong.

The nasal strips will firm up the remainder of the ear tip.

kpal4978 - You may want to start a thread in the ear posting forum with pics of your boy's ears to see if a pocket may be causing the left ear to lean. If so, it is easily corrected with the use of bumpers on your posts.

I bought some Skin Bond to help them stick better. If you don't use it, they tend to fall off pretty quickly after a day or so.

I follow the directions on the Skin Bond, which is to apply a layer of adhesive to both surfaces - in this case, the ear and the strip - then let dry for 5 minutes (though I usually don't wait the full 5 mins).

Make sure you know the right place to stick it. When he doesn't have his ears erect, make a note of where the ear folds. You don't want to put the strip down past that or he will have trouble folding his ears back. I use the regular size Breathe Right strips (not the large), and just put one end at the tip of the ear and it never reaches down past the fold anyway, so you should be fine.

Then you just stick the strip onto the ear and adhesive and hold it there, making such it is completely stuck in place. And viola! you're done.

Watch for the ears leaning or looking too floppy. If this happens, you should continue posting.
