Cleaning your dog’s ears

Sunday, February 19, 2012

If your dog is shaking it’s head  a lot and pawing its ears, it’s time for an ear cleaning before a nasty ear infection sets in. You’ll need soft cotton balls, and ear cleaning fluid from your veterinarian. While your at the vets, ask for instructions. You’ll be using your smallest finger because Q tips can go too far into the ear canal and damage the eardrum. Make sure that you have a towel handy because this could be a messy process.  Squirt a few drops in each ear. Your dog will probably shake it’s head so watch your eyes. Shaking loosens old ear wax. Wrap cotton around your little finger, and repeat as necessary.  If this causes any pain, the dog might have an ear infection and needs to see a veterinarian.
