Re: Ear Glue products

I haven't. But if breeders there have used it with success, go for it. There are a million and one ways to glue ears. All the glue products discussed are latex-based products, which are safe.

You obviously don't want to use any kind of "super glue." That would stick them for a long time.

Re: Ear Glue products

Thanks, to all that have replied to my glue questions. I received a email from the company that makes the jiffysew. I was told that it would be $10.00 cdn inclusive for the glue and shipping which I think that is a good price. If there is anyone that needs the address or email let me know, and I will post it.

Re: Ear Glue products

F Y I . . . In case anyone is wondering how to get the left over glue off ears, I've used Uni-Solve to remove the left over Tear Mender on Duke's ears. Stuff works great!! It's a Smith & Nephew product I bought at a local medical supply place.

Re: Ear Glue products

I used breaht right strips in my GSD and what I did is use eye lash glue. I put two in each ear in a big X . I held the X in the ear for about 90 sec it held very good. If they do fall out I just redid them. You just have to keep at it here is a pic just after I did it the first time. One ear I even put three in because I didnt think I got it right and here she is now, Dont give up it dosnt hurt them and it dosnt cost alot

Re: Ear Glue products

I used colostomy glue that I bought from a medical supply store. It was placed onto a playing card and then remained in the ear for about 2 months depending on how good of a job you do glueing and cutting the card to fit. I left about a 1/4 of an inch to a 1/3 on each side of ear exposed. This worked my dog now has an ear made of steel! The only negative (wasnt that bad either) was once the card fell out some leftover glue remained for a few months just looked like a dark spot. Now there is no sign of it he is almost 1. I did not wait around once I thought the ear was not going to stand.

Re: Ear Glue products

i just started using tear mender and the only question i have is how long should i keep his ears glues for? it seems to hold for about 8 or 9 days, so i just re glues them yesterday, but how many times should i do this? when they came unglued they were standing perfectly at first but by the end of the day his right ear had began to sag just a lil bit so i applied more glue. thanks for the help.
