Description

Set of two dog ear support forms made out of special foam. Dog ear support forms are like adding a thin layer of cartilage to help support soft ears on dogs that naturally should have an erect ear set. These ergonomically designed dog ear support forms help promote proper shape and growth.

These dog ear support forms are approximately 4 in long and molded into the shape of erect dog ears. Ear props can be attached to the ear via medical adhesive like Skin Bond Latex Adhesive: OSTO-BOND SKIN BONDING CEMENT, 4 OZ. CAN W/BRUSH or medical tape (both of which are available online or from a pharmacy).

Tips for Fitting
Since every dog ear is unique, there is technically no right or wrong way to place them in your dogs' ear. The best way is whichever way fits your dogs' ear...

  • First do a dry fit. Just place them against the inside of your dogs' ear and see where you may need to adjust them.
  • The curve should follow the natural curve of the dogs' ear. They do not need to cover the entire ear, nor are they intended to. They just need to cover the section where the "fold" is.
  • The L and R are guidelines but the L and R may fit best in your dog if they are reversed.
  • If you need to trim them, then you can easily trim the top, bottom and/or sides with a pair of scissors.
  • Make sure the dog's ears are clean and dry. Apply the glue to the inside of the ear and the back of the support and then press them together.
  • There is no set application time. Just like your dog, each case is unique and subject to variables like age, environment, diet and of course, genetics.
  • Keep the ear clean and dry. Try and prevent scratching. If the dog is in a crate, make sure the crate is tall enough so that it is not bending the ear unnaturally.

Other Helpful Tips
Provide your dog with something safe and age appropriate to chew. Chewing is supposed to help strengthen the muscles in the face which is believed to help the ears stand. Add supplements to your dogs's diet that help support the structural integrity of joints and connective tissues like Joint Protect Performance Complete.

good services ,fast, great!!!

These are fantastic!!! I tried every DIY home method from the breathe strips to molefoam to just taping and nothing was strong enough & comfortable enough she would leave it in. At 7 months, with totally floppy ears from a combination of poor genetics and being extremely sick and malnourished as a puppy (she was a rescue), I was about to give up, but decided to try these. They don't bother her at all and at 8.5 months it looks like the ears are going to FINALLY stay up!

I have had a few dogs taped and hated the whole process. This method is alot more gentle and less irritating to the dog.

Great product! Our GSD suffered an ear injury, and a hematoma formed, the ear flopped over. I had the ear drained, then bandaged the ear with the support in it. The blood drained, as now it was not crimped, and it's healing up and straight again. Very pleased with the product.
