I am just wondering if anyone knew if hair loss on the base of the ear is normal while taping any input would be greatly appreciated.
I've never had that much hair loss on ears, and I rarely use anything to dissolve the adhesive before removing the tape. But I powder the heck out of the entire ear before posting..this in addition to the zonas tape seems to allow the tape to come off with really minimal hair loss.If you're not using anything to dissolve the tape residue before removing the tape, then yes, there would be some hair loss (which will grow back.)
My breeder told me to get Horsemans Dream brand of cream for scratches, sores, etc. I forgot the name of it. It rubs in real well and absorbs quick. I got it for the times when his places on his ears are sort of inflamed looking or pink. I think it was around $6.00. He will get these types of places sooner or later. I am also trying powdering the ear like Kratty and Cheryl said. Well he might not if you powder.I have bought an adhesive remover that comes in wipes, but when I brought Cooper home from the breeder and had to redo the posts for the first time there was a strip where the hair was gone ath the base of the ear, but it isnt pink, or sore looking...
