Help Pitbull Ear Crop

hey im new to the site and just got my pitbulls ear cropped. Well i went through with the process of the cone and the taping for 2 weeks and today the sticches came off. I just wanted to know that my pitbulls ears stand up perfectly if he not paying attention to something but when his attention is on something his ears fold on top of his head almost touching each other instead of standing striaght up. Also 1 ear bends just a little more then the other. I asked for the show crop if that helps. I wanted to know does the ear change over time or will it fold like that always? thanks for any help also 1 of the stitch came off leaving a small scab or opening on 1 ear while the other ear is perfect the doctor said itll heal itself, i was wondering if i should use any ointment on it or anythin.

Do you have a pic? If they are bending in when he pays attention it sounds like they have to much bell and is not a show crop. A picture will get you much better answers tho.

Show crops are long and it they are on top of his head you are going to have to keep taping them up or they will stay like that. Many of my dogs with show cropped ears had to be taped as little as 4 week and some as long as 8 weeks. Get those ears back up!

This may seem like bad advice to some.....
I have seen ears, including my own dogs, come out as you have described, just let them finish healing and then give it a couple weeks. You have to understand that the cartilage is still hardening and the dog may or may not still hurt a bit. My Dr. told me before I walked out, to just give her some time(the dog) before giving him(the dr) a call. I gave it a couple weeks and they started standing, after they were much like you described. BUT, you may have to tape them if you don't see a difference any time soon. There are some great taping vids on youtube. A little glue, some of those collar inserts, and med tape and they will stand up in 4 to 8 weeks. If you have a tenacious dog, you may have to go a bit further, I know a bandogge breeder that had to go as far as reshaping dixie cups and using cement.... That's pretty drastic though. Get back to us soon, and PLEASE, post some pix so we have an idea of what you're talking about.

Yep thats what I was talking about. I had a gorgeous female that the same thing happened to. They curve the bell in to much and don't crop up... Theres not really anything you can do about it. Its just the way they did the crop. You can tape the ears and post them up and hope they will hold a bit straighter as it heals tho.

You can do the Dixie cup thing Red was talking about or use a tampon ( I know creepy lol) taped on the inside to help post them up. As they heal more they may stand better on there own.

IMO because they are a long crop you need to keep tapeing! Typhoons were like that and I had to tape her ears for 2 months and you can see just a little bit. Here is a picture of her ears after 2 months of tapeing, the ear on the left curls in just a bit



Here is how I tape.
I know everyone has a different opinion but I like to make my own "sticks" for the ears. I take like 3 Q-tips and tape them together, depending on how long the ear is I may need to tape 2 sets together to make them longer. I also tape gauze on the end so they do not rub the ear raw. Then I put them all the way in the ear canal then tape them to the ear. They work great and the dogs cannot pull them out. I have used these on my last 8 dogs and it worked great! Here is a picture of that they look like.

A long crop with 2 sets of Q tips tapped together

after, 10 mo. not the best picture sorry, she's standing funny


A short crop

Here's my method which has been tried and true for me... We both have dogs with a show crop which has bell.

You can use a tampon, but i prefer rolled up guaze because you can "custom" fit it to the width your dog needs.

sooo you need medical tape, gauze and patients. lol

I wrap each ear with medical tape individually with the rolled gauze inside making sure the ear cups the gauze. You want to always start at the base and work your way up to give the ears a better foundation. Then I pull the taped ears forward and take the medical tape and go from the back of the base of the ear towards the front of the opposite ear. The strips of medical tape will get longer and you will eventually have a figure 8 across the top of the head down under the chin. Making a little bonnet. You will loose some fur, but it will come back... the best way to take it of would be with either baby oil or a warm shower to loosen the glue. I would wrap them like this for 3-4 days and then take it off for a few days and then judge whether or not he needs to be wrapped again. Here's some pictures.

Before:




Durring





After

PS- make sure that all of the ear is cupped around the gauze in the ear... it is imperitive that you pull the ears forward while creating the bonnet. The reason is because when you unwrap them they always relax back.
