Ear Cleaning

Infected dog ear

 Cleaning your dog's ears is crucial in preventing infections and enables you to inspect their ears for any indications of problems.

We use cotton balls and dog-specific ear-cleaning solution. Unlike in humans, the ear canal is L-shaped, so there is little chance of damaging the eardrum. Some dogs are more prone to ear infections than others. Golden Retrievers and Labs who love to swim often have chronic ear problems. Dogs with floppy ears or narrow openings have trouble getting airflow creating the perfect environment for yeast and bacteria to grow. Regular ear cleaning is a simple way to prevent ear infections in your dog. You should always check your dog's ears for redness, swelling, discharge, and odor. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is time to see a veterinarian. Your vet can determine the cause of the infection and prescribe the appropriate treatment. In some cases, medication may be necessary to clear up the infection. However, in most cases, regular cleaning and maintenance can prevent ear infections from occurring. So, make sure to keep your dog's ears clean and healthy to ensure they stay happy and comfortable.
