Ear Supports for German Shepherds

We have ear forms for German Shepherd Dogs in our online store (http://k9pro.com.au/redline-k9-dog-ear-supports/).

We have not had problems with our German Shepherds so we have not used these ear supports, but many people have asked us to get them and below are the instructions for using them, though we do stipulate that using these ear supports has no guarantee that your dogs ears will stand up one support is removed.

We recommend using Tear Mender to hold the supports in place.

Below are instructions

Using tear mender on dog ears to attach ear forms tear mender is a convenient and effective alternative to using tape or bandages for shaping dog ears it is safe nontoxic and wash
proof staying put until removal is desired.

Note: ear position varies by breed and the dogs natural set so be sure to consult a professional or breed manual for proper positioning.

Preparation of the ear

• Hair on the inside of the ear flap should not be removed
• The ear canal should be flushed with hydrogen peroxide let the ear dry for 10 minutes before proceeding
• Using cotton dipped in alcohol clean the outside and inside ofthe ear flap

Application of tear mender

• Apply tear mender to the hair on the area of the ear to which the ear form is to be a fixed
• Apply tear mender to the upper portion (tip) of the inside of the ear flap
• The ear form can now be positioned
• Holding it in place for 30 seconds or until hold sets

Note: ear position varies by breed and the dogs natural set so be sure to consult a professional or breed manual for proper positioning.

The position should be watched for a few days and reposition if adjustment is needed.

The ear set should be left until hair growth loosens it. The ear form is then gently separated from the ear and the adhesive is easily
peeled off.

Removal

• Apply bandage remover available at chemist (we suggest uni-solve detachol or a little baby oil) to hair and then use a extra flne fea comb.
