Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
If the ear isn't standing at this point in time, you will likely need to get an implant if you definitely want it to stand. Many vets do not want to perform implant surgeries as they are elective surgery. However, the company that makes the permastay implants maintains a directory of surgeons who will perform the surgery. Here is the permastay brand website.
Now personally, if you have no plans on showing your dog, I would leave the ear alone. A floppy ear can add character to a dog. I do know that many people just think it distracts from a dog's beauty, but surgery of any kind does have risks associated with it.
