UN-Taping Ears

It's about time to take off Mensa's ear posts.

The Vet-Tech uses Ether to disolve the sticky stuff on the tape. I don't have any ether, and I can't seem to find a source for it.

What else works? Rubbing alcohol? That works for cleaning pine sap off her coat.

No, alcohol will not work very well. Get a bottle of Uni-Solve. It's a product made by Smith & Nephew. You maybe able to find it locally at a surgical supply store. Most likely you will need to order some. I last got it from

I think Wal-Mart carries it in their pharma dept as well.
I use something called Remove by Smith&Nephew I believe it is almost the same as the Uni-Solve. You could also use mineral oil or isopropyl alcohol 99%. The alcohol just takes longer. If you don't have either of these handy, baby oil will do in a pinch.
Thanks guys!

I'll go out and get some of that Smith and Nephew stuff tomorrow. The next town down the road, Loma Linda, is a medical town so I should be able to find some in one of their medical supply houses.

The last time I took the tape off I used nail polish remover. It didn't work very well and I earned some suspicious looks when I bought it.
Uni-Solve works great, as does veggie oil or olive oil...just go slow and manipulate the ears from the posts w/ your fingers oiled well.
HEY WHERE ARE THE PICTURES LOL! I hear its about time for mensa's ears to be done...and I waited for the pictures to load...but none when you figure out what is good to clean them up make sure we see some pics :)
Here's Mensa's latest picture:

I took this one Friday night and put it on my Mother's Birthday card (today's her birthday).

A gal at the Dog Park is having a birthday today too. I told her it was also my Mother's birthday, and that she turned 62 today, the girl says "Damn, she must've been YOUNG when she had you!"

ROFL, Chaz...why oh why can't people think first, speak second? Today I ordered my standard "Medium Black" coffee at Dunkin' Donuts. The response? "Do you want that with cream and sugar?"

PS...Mensa's a real beauty times 10. Grandma must be so proud!
Awwww, mensa got to be the star of a birthday card :D So what will she be for halloween?
I second that on Uni-solve. Stuff works great. If your in the neighborhood, I have a half of box you can have.

I remember the look on the pharmacists face when I ordered it and the skin bond. She was like "You need it for what?" When I picked it up, the other pharmacist on duty was like "Your the one with the doberman."
Waiting to see the new pics of the champion rat courser.
