Is It Possible for the Chihuahuas Ears to Drop After a While?

My chihuahuas ears stood up but now after 3 weeks the one has dropped again… is it damaged? will it eventually stand up again?

Don’t worry, the dogs ears will go up. During teething, some dogs’ ears go down but if they already stood up previously I wouldn’t worry. Just remember to keep the dog on a healthy nutritious diet. If they never stood up before and the parents had floppy ears then i’d be worried.

You don’t have to tape them. Actually a lot of worried owners tape the ears and do more harm than good.. If they are floppy still at 7 months, I would talk to your breeder or vet about taping them.

    You don’t say how old the dog is but I’d guess it’s going through teething, losing baby teeth and getting it’s permanent ones. It’s common for ears to do all kinds of crazy antics during this stage. If the pup is not going to be shown, I wouldn’t worry about it. If it is, or if you just want to make sure the ears stand up correctly ask the breeder if you should tape the ears temporarily. And if she says yes, have her teach you how to do it correctly.

    if it is a puppy, it will go back and fourth – for what reason? i don’t know

    they drop sometimes while teething. They should stand back up again later.
