I applied liberally to dog ears, and he shook it out, I can still see some moisture in his ears that I was able to clean, but what out deep in his ear? Will it evaporate since dog has an L shape ear canal, what if the liquid is stuck in there?
Answer by ChewyNov 13, 2017
This solution cleans and dries the ear. The liquid in the ear will be wiped out by you, shaken out by your pet, and then any remaining liquid will dry on its own.

Does this help take care of yeast in the ear? Or only bacterial issues?
Answer by ChewyJan 10, 2018
This product is recommended for pets with chronic otitis externa and for routine cleansing of sensitive ears.

my cat has ear wax build up and has had this issue for awile. would this help her?
Answer by ChewySep 25, 2018
This cleaner is ideal to remove excessive wax from your cat's ear.

How long can you use it before it goes bad?
Answer by ChewyNov 30, 2017
We'd recommend using it up until the expiration date on the bottle which is normally pushed out at least a year.

Goodbye ear infections!

Our dog is prone to ear infections. They are the worst! So why not prevent them in the first place?! We use this ear cleaner at least weekly and there have been zero ear infections since. It’s been a year since we first started using this. I increase use if she has been swimming, out in rainy weather etc.

Better Than an Ear Infection!

Shortly after adopting my dog, Duke, he needed to go to the vet for an ear infection. Taking a closer look at his medical records from the adoption agency, turns out he got them frequently. After learning this, I ordered Epi-Optic so we can start regular ear cleanings. Duke absolutely hates the cleanings, but we haven’t had another infection since that first one over two years ago. We typically only need to do the cleaning once a week, and the cleanings are much better than getting another ear infection!

very leaky bottle design

The solution itself works great, however the bottle I received is incredibly leaky. Much of the solution leaks out of the bottle opening instead of the intended nozzle. It does smell very medicinal, so if your dog is sensitive to strong smells or dislikes ear cleaning, they will know this is coming as soon as you open it.

Best Ear Cleaner!

I bought this based on it’s reviews. When I mentioned it to my Vet she said that’s what they recommend!. My GoldenDoodle’s ears have cleared up using this product and I was happy to hear that my Groomer uses it as well.

Good for floppy ears

We have Newfoundland's and they are always getting the wax in their ears as their ears are long with a lot of fur. Just put the tip into the ear canal, use your finger to guide it as you will feel that the inside to the canal goes like an L. Make sure you massage the lower part of the ear in an upward movement. This will help it to disperse inside. Do this once a week to help the ear stay clean, and to avoid any future infections, and will keep the inside of the ears red free. I always buy two bottles as I have two newfs.

Vet approved

After an issue with another product (it was an otc ear mite treatment), my cat's ears became irritated, so until I could get him in to see the vet, I used Epi-Otic to clean his ears. It's a lot gentler, and he responded really well to it. It turns out Epi-Otic is also what my cat's vet uses. I had to soak a cotton ball with it and drip it in his ear that way while brushing him, and he did OK with it. I have a pretty calm cat though, so your results may vary.

We have used this for years. We used to get it from our Vet back home but now we have been transferred and lost her amazing care. Luckily, though this product was available through chewy saving our ‘kids’ ears. We French a cotton ball, put that in their ear, and rub with slight pressure on the cotton ball. That puts it into their ear canal slower and they don’t freak out, run, hide, or shake too soon. Only took use decades and an angry rebellious Mastiff with chronic ear infections to figure that out. ;-D

This is a *MUST* for basset hound owners!

I love this product! Basset hound owners know the ears are problematic and this takes care of the smell, head shaking, itching on the floor, etc. The older they get the more prone they are to frequent ear infections and this product keeps them away!!! I use atleast once a week, even more during the summer when it is hot and humid.

My sweet little 7 year old beagle has never had issues. We ran out of the ear cleaner from the vets office so decided to give this stuff a shot. After using it her ears became swollen, red and scabbed. Not to mention the smell is horrific.

Ear wash

This product really works for my Golden Retriever furkids. It’s great to maintain healthy ear balance and for my everyday swimmers. It’s on auto ship so I’m never without Love Chewy
