Lola was really itchy and wanted to scratch her ears all the time. As, I have used this with previous pups and we also used this in the Vet Practice I worked in, with healing, itchy surgical wounds, without issue. I applied a small amount of of Aloe Vera gel directly to the cut edge of the ear, several times a day and that took care of it. Relieved the itching and made her feel much better. I have never had to use an e-collar for an ear crop.
Important that you use a 100% natural Aloe Vera Gel, one that is 99.5% Whole Leaf Aloe Vera and that is Certified Organic. You can find it at GNC for about $12.00. I think the brand is "Natural Brand". If you don't have a GNC nearby, any brand will do, as long as it is 99.5% Pure and Organic. Many brands contain Thickeners, Hydrators, Surfactants, Emulsifiers, etc...
If you have ever had any kind of surgery, or even a good cut -- the itching can drive you nuts. So, I feel for the poor pup.
Hugs to your boy.
