 Ear Care Products for cropped ears.

Ear Posting Foam 

Posting Foam 

Ear Posting Foam is a light-weight, round, flexible, closed cell polyethylene  foam.  Our foam is extremely economical, safe, effective, easy to use, and is available in a variety of diameters to accommodate all ear sizes.  The foam is packaged in convenient "Kits" that can be resold.  Ear Posting Foam does not rub raw spots or jab, does not require a chin strap, maintains its supportive property when damp, and requires no preparation.   Because it is so soft and light-weight, it is more comfortable for the pup than conventional posting materials.

Tape for Ear Posting

S.F Products carries two of the most common tapes utilized for taping cropped ears.  Both Elastikon and Zonas are manufactured by Johnson and Johnson.  Both tapes are porous and both are sold in one and two inch widths.   Zonas tape is white.  Elastikon is tan and, as the name implies, is a stretchable tape.

 Detachol is a solvent that reduces the stress of cropped ear aftercare by making tape removal totally painless.  While taking down a Pup's ears, use a small amount of Detachol on a cotton ball to detach the tape from the Pup's ear. The Pup's ears will not lose hair due to the tape removal process, and there will be no adhesive residue left on the ear.  The solvent should be rinsed from the Pup's ears, and the ears should be allowed to dry prior to retaping.

All About Ears Video or DVD



This is a good video for novice breeders and pet owners. S.F. Products' "All About Ears" is an informal video hosted by Arlene Scarbrough, a breeder of harlequin Great Danes since 1970.  The video discusses the pros and cons of ear cropping, how to locate a veterinarian to crop your pup; how to tape cropped ears; corrective taping procedures; surgical procedures to correct problem cropped ears; and the pros and cons of natural ears.  The video cautions against incorrect use of tape; unattended cropped ears and the resulting potential for ear infection; "RISKS" of cropping; and emphasizes the importance of dedication should you decide to crop.  "All About Ears" shows numerous cropped Danes, as well as Danes whose owner mistaped the ears.  The taping technique shown utilizes S.F. Products' Ear Posting Foam.

Slings for Transporting Giant Breeds

S.F. Products

800-235-2094 or 404-378-2203



Getting a giant breed of dog to the vet when it canít walk or has a leg injury and canít balance can be a horrible problem, especially if the dog owner lives alone or is alone at the time.  As a result of a similar scenario, I designed and found a manufacturer for two products that can assist the owners of giant breeds in transporting their injured dogs.


We provided each of our vets with the  both products for Christmas a few years ago, and they loved them.  One of our vets was here for a surgical procedure a few weeks ago and asked about the products.  He said they had really been invaluable on numerous occasions.


Full Body Sling: This sling is designed to be used when a dog is down and canít walk at all.  The sling has a weight capacity of over 300 pounds.  It is off-white in color and can be safely bleached.  This sling can be used by from one to four people to lift and move the dog.  When not in use, the sling can be folded (folds to about the same size as a large bath towel), and the poles can be stored anywhere (they are 4 feet long).


The sling is designed for use with either poles or straps.  The poles are inserted into the side seams.  There are two grip sites on each side of the sling with cut outs for hand to pole contact when lifting.  Each grip site also features a looped strap for lifting, so that the sling can be used without the poles.


If the owner is alone and canít get assistance, the dog can be rolled onto the sling; the poles can be inserted; and then the owner can drag the dog to the car.  Once at the car, the poles can be removed and the straps are used to get the dog into the vehicle.  If the owner has assistance, each person can take one side of the sling to move the dog.  If there are several people, then each person can work a grip site.


If the dog requires surgery, it can be lifted onto the surgery table with the sling, and the sling can be left under the dog during the procedure.  The poles will weigh the sides down so that the sling will hang off of each side of the surgery table, out of the veterinarianís way.  After surgery, the sling can be utilized to lift the dog off of the table and place him on the floor.  The sling can be bleached to remove blood stains and  to generally sanitize it.


Semi-Ambulatory Sling:   This sling is about 5 inches by 24 inches with a thirteen inch long loop at each end.  It is designed to comfortably support either the front or the rear of a giant breed. 


If a dog goes down in rear, just slip the sling under the belly just in front of the hips and you can stabilize him with the sling to get him to the car and into the vetís office.  If a dog has a front leg injury or function problem, just slip the sling under the belly just behind the front legs to support and stabilize him for movement to the vehicle or into the vetís office.  

This sling can be used by one or two people.  The straps are long enough to permit them to be brought together over the dog if a single person is assisting.  If there are two people assisting, one can work each side of the dog.


This sling can also be used during breeding.  It can be placed under the bitches belly toward the tuck up after the dog and bitch are tied to prevent her from sitting.
