Backer rod alternative while ears heal from sores?
My almost 10-week old pup's cup fell off his head last week, leaving behind a lot of glue residue. Some unisolve took care of it pretty easily, but he had a decently sized sore on the outside of each ear, which is now scabbed over with a pretty thick scab. I think it's going to take a while to heal. Probably more than a week until the scabs are gone, possibly longer.
I'm wondering if, in the meantime, I can post his ears using the molefoam method since that doesn't touch the outside of the ears (the scabs would be untouched). Once the sores are healed, I would want to switch to the backer rod method. The reason I come here for advice is because it looks like the two methods result in slightly different ear shapes, and I don't know if switching from one to the other would cause any issues down the road.
Thanks, this forum has been incredibly helpful for my new pup and I!
