I guess you could use "Goo Gone" or something like that but I never worried about it. The hair will grow back when your done posting. When you pull out the post just make sure you clean the puppy's ears well (inside and out), let them air out for a hour or two and repost . One day you'll look back on it and say to yourself " Boy!!, I'm glad that's over with", ....lol

You might try baby oil. I believe that has been suggested as helping to loosen tape stickies and easy on the ears :)

I used Goo Gone on Phin when needed, but usually the tape just came off his ears quite easily and I didn't need to use anything.

we use rubbing alchohol and put a small amount of baby powder in the ear and post before taping.  seems to work pretty well.  baby oil is good for adhesives, as previously stated.

There is adhesive remover sold by medical supply companies. If you google it you will find it.

We use goo gone on Desoto's ears. But I've heard baby oil works great too.
