This is a brief photo tutorial of using zip-ties to post cropped ears.

Trim ear hair on the inside of your dog's ears

Take one of the zip-ties and insert into the ear as far down into the pocket that it will go, measure and cut the zip-tie so that it extends beyond the tip of the ear

Either using alcohol swabs or rubbing alcohol with a cotton ball, clean the entire inside of the ear and allow to dry.

Using the cloth tape, tape a small piece of cotton ball to the bottom of each zip-tie. This will help prevent the corners of the zip-tie from rubbing inside the ear.
