    Looks good! I can't tell for sure but you could have a problem with them popping out since they might not be deep enough into the canal.

    Great, thank you for letting me know. We’ll keep an eye on it, and see how it goes. Next wrapping, we’ll be sure to push them down further!

    I think it looks great! Not to be contrary with others but I used the more tape when it was rainy and muddy outside.

    Ragnar was always a rough pup and was into everything. By using more tape, I was able to keep the inside of his ears clean from mud and debris.

    The one thing that I would discourage is the use of vet wrap/tape. It tends to constrict the longer it’s on and will most definitely shrink if it gets wet. Don’t want to inadvertently cut off circulation.

    Wow, thanks for letting me know! I saw a different article that advocates for the vet wrap. I forgot which one it was though.
    I’ll be sure to keep an eye on it, he’s just had a lot of irritation from the glue the vet had used before, I wanted to keep it free from more adhesive.

    My wife and I freaked out our first few times too. Just lots of treats and praise and he will eventually not even care. Just remember to remain calm lol.

    After a month or so you'll feel like a pro and he'll act like one too.

    Best of luck and welcome from Michigan!!!

    I have to agree. Anytime someone says vet tape I get a little worried. LOL it can be great stuff, but easy to get it too tight. And then there's the shrinkage Factor.

    Cute litte guy!!

    Yes, AMD posted it on page one of this thread.

    That's one of those things I've read a lot too but after posting 4 Dobermans I've found that the regular porous cloth tape is way better.

    good to know, we definitely will take that into consideration. We just want some of his skin to heal from the first vet wrapping.
