MOLE SKIN Ear Cropping Post
 
Ok Everyone here is how you use the Mole Skin

Items Needed

- Mole Skin

- 5 Second Glue

http://www.overstockdrugstore.com/pr...9013125035.jpg

- Sissors

Applying

- Cut the mole skin to the shape of the ears. Make sure you cut all the pieces.
L must have two sheets
R must have two sheets

- Glue the L pieces together & the R pieces together

- After they are DRY, place glue on the back of the piece that is going into the ear

- Put the tip to the tip of the ear, and push the mole skin into the ear, hold for a few seconds and done

- then do the next ear.

It will stay for up to 2 weeks as long as the dog does not tear it out.

REMINDER

It will tear out the hair in the ear. DO NOT SHAVE IT FIRST, need hair to bone with the glue.

Hope this helps you all

Here is another shot of my pup with it in

Helps them to post while they are healing rather then waiting to get them to post/stand. Nicer way to keep the ears errect

Hi, I got mole skin yesterday so I can put my pups ears up, and I bought Krazy Glue, will that work as good as the glue u mentioned? And how do I do this? You cover the while ear with the mole skin? Let me know if I can use crazy glue, thank you Deb!!

Napo

I usually have my pups done at 12 weeks of age .. but I have done this style of ear posting even on dogs I have got at 11 months and did there ears and them stood.
I have also fixed ears this way from damage or falling.

I used the mole foam method on rayne and I thought I'd post some pictures showing before and after.

Puke: before moleskin.

Looking sorry for herself.

A while later: Much better, still missing some fur around ears from the glue pulling some out. Ouchie!

The hair grows back .. looks like it worked nicely for ya .. :clap:

ChicoG 12-01-2011 08:08 AM

Sorry to bother but care to elaborate little more.. when you say 2 pieces, do you mean 2 pieces thick? Or 2 separate pieces... also Do you just glue the tip and thats it? Or Glue tip and both sides?

performanceknls 12-01-2011 03:09 PM

You glue two pieces together to make it thicker. You glue the tip but also further down in the inside of the ear canal. I would apply the glue to the mole skin then put it in the ear and not put glue on the ear it could drip down the ear canal.

Isn't it illegal to crop your dog's ear by your own? I get the creeps every time I hear someone cropping their dog's ear on their own.

No its not and its a personal choice if you dont like it then dont do it, alot of us like the look and have reasons such as showing to do it.

APASA 01-26-2012 01:17 AM

I think she means isn't it illegal to Crop your dogs ear "on" your own. Like, a backyard job. And yes, it is illegal. At least it is in the US. That is not what is being described in this post however. Here, they are talking about helping the ears stand/or their shape "after" they have been cropped, professionally, by a vet.

Will this work with stiches
 
I had my pitbull ears crop and there are not standing right please help will this work with stiches

geisthexe 08-22-2012 04:08 AM

Wait till the stitches either dissolve or you have them removed. Massage the ear for a few days then glue in the mole skin. You will leave in until the mole skin starts to fall out. Might have to do twice but very worth it :)

Have a question where do you get the moleskin? Just asking as I may have my pups I keep off Akiliya and Bouncer done cause Bouncer throws them big floppy ears sometimes.

geisthexe 09-07-2012 11:12 PM

You can get the mole skin in any drug store like CVS or Walgreens. It will be in the foot section

If the pup tries to take it off constantly should they wear a cone?

geisthexe 09-17-2012 01:05 AM

Yes ..

Hi folks. Just wanted to show some results. I used the mole foam and an adhesive for ostomies (I got a free sample since the company was down the street). I let her wear it for about a month with some taping around it to try to keep it clean. I took it off maybe 3x (once a week) for a shower or when it was excessively dirty.

My girl at 13 weeks.

Then at 18 weeks.

Princesspaola21 11-09-2012 01:39 AM

So if my dog is 10 months old will this still help? They were done when he was young by the breeder and I HATE the way they look. They hug his head and look pitiful.

It doesn't hurt to try. I just noticed he doesn't have much ear there. The sides have been cropped completely off so I was wondering about it. I feel bad for him lol they look so sad.

@geisthexe - I'm curious about your brindle pup's ear.. We have a 14 week old APBT that is healing beautifully from his short-ish crop (short 'pet-crop' with full bell). But, the tiny bit on the top side (the edge of the ear that does't get cut) rolls back, just like your brindle pup. The rest of the ear is perfectly straight and holding nicely, but I'm wondering if that roll should be fussed over?? There's no cartilage, so I'd be amazed if it was trainable, but wondering if it will count against him in any breed shows.
