    I have a 12 week old boxer, he has natural ears (planning to keep it that way). The Cartlige in one ear is growing funny. My vet said to get a splint that won't cut the circulation off, but gave us no reccomendations.

    Does anyone have any ideas or know of any thing that has worked for their pups?

    Thanks

    Cane and Ali are so beautiful!!! I just had to check out your babies pics :)
    I really don't know anything about the splint that the vet mentioned, sorry. Doesn't seem that the Vet was very helpful to you at all. I think I would call him or her back and say what exactly are you talking about??
    Everyone is so great here on Boxerworld, I'm sure you will get a helpful answer from someone soon.

    I think the problem with Cane's ears is due to him teething & therefore not that much of a problem.
    Sometimes when a puppy starts to teeth their ears may appear to develop a mind of their own & basically do their own thing.
    This "flying" of the ears can look a little funny because one ear can be sitting normal & the other can be flying out all by itself. :p
    It is generally just a phase in the life of a puppy but if you are worried about it you can massage the ears to encourage them to get back to normal, plus massaging a boxers ears is fun both for you & your boxer.
    Here's a link on massaging a boxers ears.

    Of course if Cane is anything like our 2 boxers he will absolutely love getting his ears massaged. :D
