The Dreaded Ear Flop

It happened. I hoped so badly it wouldn’t but it did. After 3 whole weeks of Fendi’s ear staying up, her right ear flopped back down.

It was strange, the first day, she let it flop and brought it back up whenever I held it for a few seconds. I decided to keep an eye on it and see what happened. The next morning, I could not get her to put it up at all.


So poor Fendi is wrapped back up. I got her wrapped yesterday (Wednesday) and will be taking off the tape the next Monday. The vet reminded me that this is a process and it is best I brought her in as soon as we noticed it. The vet hopes it will only take another week since it was standing so well before.

I am not sure if we will continue taping if it fails again after another 2 weeks. This time around, it seems like it is irritating her a lot more. Maybe because she is older and has gotten accustom to the freedom of non-wrapped ears. I think she looks cute with the flop, but it would be nice to have them completely up, especially considering all the work that went into them. However, I am not going to let her continue to be bothered by them .. so we will see …
