how to clean your dog/ cat’s ears

Items needed:

  • Ear cleaner
  • Gauze or cotton balls (q-tips are not recommended)
  • a willing (or not so willing) participant (your pet)

Steps:

  1. Place a good amount of ear cleaner in the animal’s ear
  2. Massage the base of the ear so you hear a squishy sound (if you don’t hear a squishy sound add a little more ear cleaner)
  3. Allow the animal to shake it’s head
  4. Clean out the visible gunk that you see in the ears.
  5. If you believe there is more debris in the ear, go back to step one and repeat the process until all clean.
  6. If you notice any pus, signs of irritation, or any unpleasant odor, please visit your vet to get a check up and see that everything is okay.
