Cleaning Your Dog’s Ears

Cleaning Your Dog’s Ears

Your dog’s ears are somewhat self-cleaning but may need to be swabbed out about twice a month. Examine your dog’s ears for scratches or abrasions or signs of infection such as redness, swelling and dark discharge. These conditions may require medical attention. Otherwise use a dog-safe ear rinse to clean your dog’s ears. Pour a little rinse in the ear canal and use the earflap to distribute the fluid and loosen debris. Clean the debris out and dry the ears using cotton balls. You can use cotton swabs but only reach in as far as you can see to prevent damage to the ear canal. Change the cotton often. Only use a cotton ball in one ear to prevent cross-contamination between the ears. Act quickly and efficiently when cleaning your dog’s ears and never force him to comply. Just try another time if your dog resists. Contact your experienced vet Springdale ON to learn more.
