Dog Ear Deformity

A mound of excess skin located at the ends of an incision

Question: my dog cant lift her left ear up? i have a dog and she has ears like a blue heeler meaning their pointing straight up but she can only lift one up the other stays floppy and i dont know why this is is it how she was born a deformity please answer so i can take her to the vet as soon as possible and if your thinking why dont you take her to the vet right away its because i dont want to spend money on something that wasnt severe or fatal or something like that please answer soon thank you

Answer: Is she young? A teething puppy's ears will often go up and down and sometimes stay semi-erect for the remainder of their life. They can be taped but if she's a cross breed they could go either way.
