Default removing ear glue/tape

one of Ruckus ears are coming untaped and unglued (it has both on it)
so i am just wanting to take both of them down. what would be the easiest least painful way of doing this? it is extremely sticky, and Ruckus doesnt have much patience for anyone messing with his ears

I don't know what kind of glue you used, but there should be some solvents at the store.

Though I don't know if it's safe to use near the ears.....but then again.....I think they have a warning on glue's about it also lol (Again, don't know what kind you used )

It was a joke...I have not the faintest idea on how to undo ears...but it works for kids and band-aids!

I figured it was probably some special glue that made my advice useless LOL

Have you done a google search?

*edit* I'm pretty sure you could probably still find a solvent to help get it out without hurting him that would also be safe for his skin.

Hi Ruckus' mom... (very naughty Zoom!! Lol) To remove ear glue, go to hardware store and buy "adhesive remover". I assume you used surgical or leather glue. It will come in a spray bottle in 2 different types, oil or water base. Either is fine. Do not spray ear. Take Q-tip or cotton balls and saturate, then hold base of ear and massage Q-tip inside creased glued area, slowly seperating tip of ear from the rest of the ear. Work your way thru inside of ear until it's loose. Then hold tip of ear up, take saturated cotton ball and clean up the entire inside of ear. Finish off by wiping with a warm water soaked paper towel. Don't leave the solvent on ear. some puppies will take their paws and rub ears over their head, past eyes and down muzzle. You want to make sure they don't get anything in their eyes. Good luck!

You can also use rubbing alcohol or baby oil. Rubbing alcohol didn't work very well and was a HUGE pain... not to mention how unruly Auggie was while we tried to get it out. The baby oil worked a little bit better, but it made the top of his head all oily (duh!) and we still ended up ripping some hair... Auggie had a bald spot for a while! It was kind of funny, except for all the people who acted like I was abusing Auggie because he had a bald spot, even after I explained it was because of his ears being glued down... that wasn't funny at all...

There are also some solvents they sell at hair & beauty supplies to remove hair glue... but I never tried any of those to see how well they worked!
