Is there a good way to deal with Pony cancer? I'm worried a few of mine might have it.
Oh no! That’s awful!! Hopefully you can get him cleaned up enough so he’s at least display worthy on his own.I'm going to have to deal with my Sunburst soon. He was in mint condition when I bought him and now has cancer over his neck and other parts of his body.
I think all those helpful ideas would work and I do admit sometimes I use bleach for pin dot. My husband already acusses me of slicing off their heads I dont think stabbing them with a needle would be much different. I already to that to rehairs.I have a friend who swears by taking a diabetic needle, loading it with acetone and shooting it into the middle of the affected area. I dunno if it works, but she feels it does. Can't hurt to try.
No it can happen on any vinyl toy. It’s most common cause is a fungal growth. Most commonly found on ponies that have either been “touched” by an infected pony or ponies who are or were kept in humid areas where fungi can easily grow. (I have a G4 Fluttershy who is new in box with a few cancer spots on her.)Especially those we played with as kids
All the cleaning stuff probably confuses them, like an animal being taken to the vet lol.
Btw, is pony cancer only a G1 problem, or can it happen to other types of ponies too?
To quote @Far Dreamer :Ah, good to know. Does the soak have any side effects to worry about?
