How to Clean a Dog’s Ears
When your dog’s ears are dirty and smelly and need cleaning, it means that there is some kind of infection present and what you need to do is disinfect them. You can take him to the vet for professional treatment or you can easily clean them at home using a disinfectant like EcoEars which is made for dog ear infections.
Putting off disinfecting the ears is guaranteed to make the problem worse. Here is what you need to know to clean your dog’s ears and get rid of the problem safely and quickly.
Getting a Good Disinfecting Dog Ear Cleaner Will Save You Time and Heartache
There are many cleaners out there. Of course, plain old soap and water will “clean” your dogs ears, but by choosing a cleaner that is able to penetrate into the ear canal and eliminate the cause of the infection, you will only have to do this once.
Vet Organics’ dog ear cleaner (called EcoEars) was formulated with a broad spectrum of powerful natural ingredients–with each one targeting specific types of infections. As a result, EcoEars is effective on the vast majority of dog ear infections. It has been used successfully on dog ear mites, yeast infections, fungus, and a wide range of canine bacterial ear infections.
In addition to killing parasites and bacteria, EcoEars lowers the pH in your dog’s ear slightly which makes the ear environment far less susceptible to recurring infections.
Putting off cleaning them is Guaranteed to make it worse.
Let’s face it. While dirty smelly ears are a nuisance, ear infections need to be treated before they get really bad. Once the infection makes it past the ear drum, you risk rupturing the ear drum and infecting the inner ear. This often results in bleeding from the ear and severe pain for the dog. Treat ear infections as soon as you can.
Only Clean When Necessary
A dog’s ears are very different than a human’s ears. Dog ears are very sensitive and for the most part keep themselves clean; you do not have to clean your dog’s ears unless they appear dirty under the flap or are smelly. Once you’re familiar with the process you’ll be able to handle it on your own whenever necessary in just a couple of minutes per day.
Pick the Right Time
Dogs, like people, have moods. Cleaning your dog’s ears is always going to be easier if you catch your dog when he’s feeling relaxed and calm. Take your dog for a walk or a quick outside play session to burn off some of his excess energy and make him a bit more receptive to being restrained — some dogs are sensitive about their ears and waiting for them to be in a naturally calm state can make a big difference in the difficulty of the task.
Cleaning the Ears
All you need to properly clean and disinfect your dog’s ears are some paper towels and a bottle of EcoEars. First, take the paper towel and wet with EcoEars. Then gently wipe visible dirt and other debris out of the flap area of the ear. If your dog has ear mites or yeast or some other ear health issue, don’t worry, EcoEars helps with all of the most common dog ear problems. Dogs with floppy ears are more likely to develop ear problems as moisture is more easily trapped inside, but any dog can develop them.
Then, lay your dog on her side and restrain her head so she can’t shake. Next, fill the ear canal with EcoEars or your favorite cleaner and gently massage the base of the ear for 90 seconds so that the liquid penetrates easier. Then wipe away any visible remaining liquid and then let the dog shake. It is best to do this on the floor or a small rug so that if there is any mess it is easy to clean up.
You will need to do this twice per day for two weeks to ensure that any lingering infection is gone.
Routine dirt and mud can be handled during your dog’s bath. However, if you notice a bad smell, redness, swelling, or indicators of pain in your dog’s ears, you’ll need a natural disinfectant dog ear cleaner such as EcoEars.
Ear infections can be quite painful for your pup and can have a number of other health side effects, so it’s best to address them as quickly as possible. Dogs that swim often are more likely to develop ear problems as a result of their aquatic activities—many dog ear cleaners can be used after swimming as a preventative measure.
Your dog’s ears are one of his most sensitive spots; take your time when cleaning his ears to ensure he stays comfortable. If necessary, clean one ear and take a break before starting the other. The goal here is always keeping your pup healthy and happy — approaching the task with positivity and enthusiasm will help your pooch to understand ear cleanings are not something he should fear. We always suggest giving him a treat afterwards.
When you use EcoEars, you’ll notice the itch and smell begin to improve in 1-2 days and be gone in a few days. (You should always complete the treatment according to the instructions on the label.) Will it work? It is extremely likely. But if it doesn’t, we offer a 100% no-questions-asked money-back guarantee.
