    Dear All,

    I heard that vitamin C was good to use to help straighten up a floppy ear on short (small) eared dogs. Sounds more like an old wives tale to me. Anyone else hear of this?

    Well . . . I hadn't heard that but it does make sense as vitamin C supports and strengthens connective tissues.

    Medical science is "discovering" new treatments and cures every day that were there all along for anyone who listened to old wive's tales and lore.
