If a pup's ears are standing before they start teething at 3 months then the ears may stay up. They may come down again during teething, and if they do, then you just start posting again.Wrigley is 13 weeks today and I just took her posts down (second posting) Why does everyone keep posting until like 6 mos., if they are standing now? Just curious - thanks!
Where in Iowa are you and who did you get your pup from? She's adorable!This is Sully, our 15-week-old female. Her ear crop procedure was different then any I've read about online. Our vet did the surgery at 10 weeks, sent her home with stitches and no bandages. We returned to the vet after nearly 3 weeks to remove the stitches and begin posting/taping. His instructions were 2 days on/2 days off. We use tampons with cardboard applicators and athletic tape. This photo was taken right after we removed the first taping. We, too, have wondered whether we should continue the taping regimen, so it's helpful to learn that Sully's ears may flop during teething in the next couple of months. We'll stick to the plan!
Thanks for all the advice. This is 6 hours after removing 2nd set of posts. I was such a fool for the second time and did not use any type of adhesive remover. When she got an infection from the crop, the emergency vet (who admittedly knew nothing about cropping) tore up her ears removing tape. Her poor hair was just growing back and I totally pulled some out tonight when I removed tape tonight. UGH!
I feel like the poor thing looks like she has mange! lol I know it will grow, Just kicking myself for not thinking.
