I have a really strange question. My dobe is 3 1/2 yrs old, natural ears. Still can't seem to get the ear mites to go away for more than a few days. I was wondering if getting her ears cropped short/military style might help, just to remove the extra skin so some air can get in. I realize the ears will most likely not stand, but just to get some air flowing in to help them stay dry. I really don't think I would ever do this, since she is so old, but was just wondering if it would work, theoretically? Like I said, a really strange question.  ;D  Thanks
