Re: tattered ears

Using q-tips can work, especially if he puts his quills up/ balls up.

Re: tattered ears

well orbie is more of the active adventurer type he doesnt usually cuddle sometimes he will come lay down near me but he is easily startled if i try to pet him. i got him from a petstore that didnt even know his gender! so i can imagine how little they handled him... they even sold me the wrong food. not the type that he was eating there. i think im going to try it after a bath he is surprisingly calm when he gets a bath and after, thats the only time that i can really pet him. Unless he comes up to me and rubs against me.

Re: tattered ears

My Cholla falls asleep on me all the time. I will pet, or stroke him gently. I don't know if Orbie is the same way. What I would do, personally, is to put the vasaline on my thumb & index finger & kind of sneakily slip it onto his ears while I stroked him.
If he doesn't go for it, well, I don't know... maybe put it on all 5 fingers & hope 2 of them get him!

Re: tattered ears

do you have any tips on how to get it on his ears? hes a good boy but really wont let me rub anything on his ears as i've already tried to put the Vaseline unsuccessfully.

Re: tattered ears

I would avoid vaseline, I personally don't trust petroleum products very much (even to the point of changing Inky's liners to a different fabric). Things like human nipple cream or bag balm (lanolin) or flax oil work just as well.

Re: tattered ears

My boy had really bad tattered ears and was very hesitant to let me tough them! So ive been adding cod liver oil to his food, he loves it and it cleared it up very fast! His ears look amazing now!
