When to Clean Your Dog’s Ears

Having clean ears is an important part of your dog’s health and grooming routine. Typically, your Dances with Wolves Ranch dog shouldn’t need any special ear cleaning unless there is a problem. If you overclean your dog’s ears or use the wrong materials, it could actual harm more than help.

If your Dances with Wolves Ranch dog has particularly sensitive ears or if he spends a lot of time in the water you may need to consider ear cleaning. Otherwise, the only reason you should worry about cleaning your dog’s ears is if you notice some health problem. It’s normal to see wax and hair in your dog’s ears, but otherwise it should be pink, clean, and odorless. You should be familiar with what a healthy dog ear looks like so it will be easy to notice if something is wrong. If your dog is shaking his head, scratching at his ears, or if there is redness, swelling or discharge from around that area, then you should consider an ear cleaning. If this is the case, it’s always best to consult your vet about the frequency and proper process for ear cleaning.

How to Clean Your Dog’s Ears

Due to the structure of dog ears canals, bad infections can happen if dirt or other materials get trapped deep in the ear. If you are improperly cleaning, it can even make the irritation worse.That’s why it’s important to always use a quality ear cleaner instead of something like hydrogen peroxide or alcohol. Dogs ears are sensitive and harsh cleaners will irritate their ear canal. Talk to your vet about the ear cleaner they recommend. Never use Q-tips or go farther into the dog’s ear canal than your finger will reach. Always be gentle, supply treats, and stop if your dog seems to be in pain.
