Can someone please help me?

I'm new to the forum. Have a 9 1/2 week old puppy cropped yesterday. Tape is strapped from ears to under the chin. Crop looks great, nice and clean, but the tape going down the side of her face is too tight, pulling on her eye and skin. I need to loosen it!! She is down right miserable and anxiety is high in our house. We feel horrible for subjecting her to this. Any suggestions for loosening the tape adhesive from her face? It's stuck to her fur. I can't use anything not safe for skin because it's so close to her eye and sutures. Please help!

Use baby or mineral oil to dissolve the adhesive, and gently peel the tape off. If there is any tape over the cut edges od her ears, take that off, also. It won't hurt to just let them stay down until they are healed, and the stitches are removed. Dont start posting until after that.

Do I need to get the mineral oil under the tape or will it seap through? Boy am I glad you responded. I'm an emotional wreck. Trying not to let her know it though.
