Ears

by Tina Haywood
(Granbury Tx. USA)

Our coton is about 3 months old. She is healthy and happy but her ears are always flipped backwards. They fold near the head and you can see the inside of the ear. They will easily fold back down but I am concerned that they will "crease" or be trained to stay that way if it continues.


Has anyone else had this challenge?? If so, will it be a long term challenge or did your pup grow out of it??

Thanks

EARS NEW

I think to this is very common. Cottons ears do it at times, it gives a great opportunity for air to get in and help dry out her ears.

Our rescue dog has been plagued with ear problems off and on, I will fold hers back every chance I get. Feel like this does help.

Ear flip NEW
by: Diane

Gleasons ears flip all the time, Spanky's used to when he was younger, b ut now that the hair is longer on the ear, it doesn't that much. Floppy ear dogs do that... no concern at all.

Flipped Ears NEW

Jasmine's ears always flipped back too. I thought there was something wrong with them but she flips them right back or I do. No biggie.

Logan's ears also flip. They always flip back so I'm not too concerned.

Flipped Back Ears NEW
by: Terry and Chloe

I totally agree with Andrea's comment to you. Our Chloe has the same situation and we discussed it with our vet. He said "no worries". Chloe will often shake her head to get her ear(s) back to normal but when she doesn't we say Chloe "shake your head and flip your ear" and she does it. It's amazing how smart these little dogs are.

Flipped back ears are normal. He will shake them back or you can flip them back. My Coton does the same, as well as the poodles and bisons I've owned throughout the years.
