Dog Ear Care

Blunt-tipped, button, candle flame, cropped, semi-cropped, pendant, filbert-shaped, folded, prick, rose, hooded, v-shaped, and on and on—there are many types of dog ears out there. One thing they all have in common? All dog ears need to be cleaned regularly to avoid potential health issues. Thankfully, there are some helpful ear cleaning solutions for dogs you can purchase today. Naturally occurring wax and discharge in your dog’s ear canal can lead to unpleasant odors, discomfort and even ear infections if not cleaned properly, on a regular basis. There are a number of liquid dog ear care solutions that make cleaning your dog’s ears easy, including Virbac Epi-Otic Advanced Ear Cleaner for Dogs & Cats, Zymox Ear Cleanser for Dogs & Cats, Vet's Best Ear Relief Wash for Dogs, and more. Simply apply liberally to your dog’s ears, massage in, and then wipe clean. Done! There are also moist pad products that are used by simply wiping in and around your dog’s ear, such as Earthbath Ear Wipes for Dogs & Cats. By using one of these products according to the label directions, generally once or twice per week, you will ensure your dog has clean, healthy ears. But what if your dog’s ears already show itchiness or redness from ear wax or discharge? If your dog develops irritation caused by naturally occurring ear wax or discharge, there are some treatment products that could help. Zymox Otic Pet Ear Treatment with Hydrocortisone effectively treats acute and chronic otitis externa— inflammation or infection of the external ear canal—due to bacterial, fungal and yeast infections with three active enzymes that have shown to be antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral. Zymox Otic Pet Ear Treatment without Hydrocortisone is best used for the treatment of acute and chronic inflammation of the external ear in dogs and cats caused by bacterial, viral and yeast infection. It is important to examine any buildup in your dog’s ears before beginning treatment. If your pup has brown or black ear wax that seems dark and dry, it could be a sign that she has ear mites. If you suspect your dog may have ear mites, Virbac Otomite Plus Ear Miticide for Dogs & Cats and other similar products kill ear mites fast, easily stopping the itching and misery of ear mites for your pet. In any case, if your dog’s ears don’t clear as prescribed on the label of the treatment you are using, be sure to consult your veterinarian immediately.
