I have to dobes, Capone & Bonnie. Both had their ears cropped at the same place, received after-care from the same vet, and yet only Capone's ears stood. We asked for a short cut on both, and received that with Capone, but Bonnie ended up with a cut somewhere between medium and long. Bonnie will be 2 yrs. on Dec. 25th and although we tried everything we could while we were getting her ears wrapped-after the cuts were done- (calcium, powder, vitamins, anything to make her cartilage stronger) nothing worked. Our vet told us that unfortunately we had spent our money on nothing and that some dogs' ears just don't stand. Had I known this would have happened, I never would have subjected her to getting her ears cropped. Now she looks somewhat ackward because her ears aren't natural and yet, they don't stand. Does anyone have any information on whether or not there's something than can be done at this point to get her ears to stand? I know it's kind of late, but I wanted to make sure that I've exhausted all options before I give up. Thanks for your help.
