Hello

While I have been trying to get Chase's ears to stand perfectly I have been thinking of giving him some sort of supplement to help his ears stand quicker..

Would you either give your dog calcium or gluco to help?? and how much.

Again it's just the middle of the ear that has a bit of a bend to it.

Thanks

I asked my vet that question when my first Doberman was a puppy. He said he didn't think calcium would do anything to help the ears to stand. Regardless, calcium is dangerous to give without balancing it properly with phosphorus. Personally I wouldn't give any supplements, just keep taping.

I wouldn't. It really does not help, and excessive calcium increases the chances of other diseases. Your pup gets plenty of calcium from it's food (if you feed kibble).
