Pet Ear Care

Your new pets ears need to be checked regularly for injury, cleanliness, parasites, and possible infections. One major symptom of ear problems is a pet that rubs or scratches at its ear.  If upon examination you notice redness, an odor, swelling, bugs, yeast, foreign objects, or if you can not find anything that looks wrong but your pet continues to focus on the ear, it could be an ear infection, call your Vet.  Pets with long floppy ears can have more ear problems.  There are many over the counter cleaning solutions and your Vet may suggest one of his/her own.  Your Vet can show you the proper way to clean your pets ears and suggest a schedule of how often to clean the ears.

Suggested supplies.

  • Vet recommended ear cleaning solution
  • Cotton pads or wash cloths
