Hi. We cropped our boxer, Kaiser's, ears when he was 10 wks old. He is now 5 1/2 months old and I am wondering when it is time to just call it quits. We have kept them consistently wrapped, definitely correctly, by the vet that does a local breeder's show dogs all the time (very reputable and good work). About a month ago, we started leaving the wraps off for a few days after each unwrap to see how they did. The first couple times of this, both ears would begin to fall around the midsection, and we immediately had them rewrapped. The last couple of unwraps, his right ear stayed up very well, but the left slowly gets lazy to where he can't get it up any more. I know that it can take up to much longer than 5 1/2 mos to get them both permanently erect, but he sleeps on them (especially the left) very weirdly, all crinkled up and folded against the side of his crate. Is it possible that it is the way in which he always sleeps on that one, that is causing it to not permanently stand?? <he has always slept what seems to us very awkwardly> He just had them unwrapped 4 days ago now, and just this afternoon, the left ended up flopping AGAIN!! Got my hopes all up for nothing... Might calcium be able to help?--I have read that some others have used it, but am not sure. Thank you in advance for any and all help and advice.
