How are there ears looking to you? This is day 3, post crop. I have not tried to clean them. But I do clean the collar off quite a bit, because they get all sorts of stuff on it that rubs on thier ears. They also use it like a shovel out in the snow. I have to try to keep it dry.
The ears look normal for 3 days in...........from what I've seen. Orson wore a different thingy on his head, and my vet didn't do the collars. He said he felt it pushed the ears forward, but every vet is different. It probably helps keep them off each others ears too I bet.
Ears look fine to me. About a week after Mensa was cropped I took her back to the Vet because I thought they weren't healing right, and was afraid they were infected. I thought they looked like hell. The Vet said they looked "great", and sure enough, everything turned out OK. So I know how you feel about them.
Mensa's Breeder suggested "Neosporin + Pain" to smear on the edges to help them heal. I applied that twice a day, and changed her sock-bonnet at the same time.
They are lovely! Its nice to 'meet' them after hearing so much about them. Tia will also be wearing an 'elizabethan collar' after her spay op so I've just been informed - don't think she'll take kindly to that!
Cleo did great with an e-collar. She had to wear one on quite a few occasions and she would get it banged up after a while but overall the humans and cats minded it a lot more then she did. She was an adult too though so maybe that made the difference.
Yeah, Poor,Poor Ray-Ray! (Thats Raven's Nic name.) I tink she wishes they came with an off switch. Sometimes I do too! he he
I had to take thier crowns off tonight because thier ears came unglued from it. I would of taped them back to it, but they were really yucky looking. And smelled infected. Is it normal for the glue to take off so much hair and make them look that bad? I'm pretty sure I made it worse by getting the glue wet when I tried to clean them. They go back to the vets tomorrow thank godness.
