Tell us about yourself: I'm from Brazil and own a Dutch with 1.5 years old.
He becomes to the family just for guard and safety, but when i discovered all his potential, i started a program of trainings to initiate him on Mondioring.

Ears don't up

Post by vitorlinares » Wed Jul 13, 2016 6:25 pm

Hello everybody,

My dutch have 1.5years old and his ears still down.
When he's alert, the years goes up perfectly, so the cartilage is not broken or fractured.
I already tried a lot of supplements since he was 8 months, like calcium, collagen powder and gelatine, from different brands and forms, but nothing seems to be effective.
He used a splint (i dont know if is it the correct name in english) from 7 months until 9 months, and nothing.
There's anything else i can do at this age to up his ears that is not evasive and harmless?
