Malteses are known for their luxurious white coats and their gentle, yet fearless, personalities. Your Maltese’s temperament may be friendly, excited, energetic, and ready to say hello to any dog or human who comes their way.
On the outside, their beautiful, bright coats are pretty and polished so their wide eyes shine through. These exterior traits make them excellent show dogs, but their warm and vibrant personas actually make them even better as companions who love nothing more than to cuddle up close with their parents.
However, there’s one thing in particular that you’ll want to keep an eye out for with Malteses: ear infections.
Ear infections are common in dog breeds with floppy ears, such as the Maltese. The floppy nature of their ears tends to trap bacteria and yeast and combines with the hair already growing in there to form an unpleasant situation.
The good news is that preventing an ear infection in your Maltese is easier than you think.
Signs Your Maltese’s Ears are Acting Up
Thanks to their energetic temperaments, you can spot an ear irritation in a Maltese a mile away.
Have you ever noticed your Maltese incessantly scratching at her head? Or noticed your precious pup sliding her head along the carpet or floors? Excessive rubbing should be your first indication that something’s up.
You may also find an unpleasant odor coming from their ears as well.
These are all signs that your Maltese’s ears may be bothering her and a possible infection may be present.
Maintain Proper Ear Health in Your Maltese
If you’ve spotted any of these symptoms, it’s a good time to clean your Maltese’s ears.
First, and most importantly, do not try to clean your dog’s ears using a Q-tip or other swab. You could end up pushing the infection or bacteria further into the ear canal which will certainly make the problem worse.
Instead, use a soft cloth on the outside ear grooves and a safe, natural solution for the inside of the ear canal.
EcoEars is the perfect, all-natural option for treating internal bacteria, yeast, and fungal infections, as well as ear mites that can cause problems for your pup.
If symptoms are already present, EcoEars can work its magic within the first 24-48 hours, providing relief for your itchy pup.
The majority of infections are gone within 72 hours of using EcoEars. Which means your Maltese won’t have to wait several days to see their vet and they won’t need an expensive bout of antibiotics, saving you hundreds of dollars in the long run.
Once you’ve removed the ear infection, it’s time to prevent another one from forming.
Preventing Ear Infections in Your Maltese
The idea is to keep your Maltese’s ears clean and dry at all times. Therefore, whenever you bathe your pup, you’ll want to stick a dry cotton ball in their ears to prevent any water or moisture from entering.
If it’s hot out and your pup has been outside all day or just came back from a walk, you may also want to wipe their ears down using a soft cloth to prevent bacteria growth.
You could also use EcoEars as a preventative measure to keep yeast and bacteria at bay. Simply add a few drops to your dog’s ears every few days and you’re good to go.
