CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? -- CLEANING YOUR DOG'S EARS
HOW WILL I KNOW IF MY DOG HAS AN EAR INFECTION?
Keep an eye on your dog’s everyday behavior and physical health. As the pet’s owner, you will know better than any when your dog begins to act abnormally. In particular, keep an eye out for:
- Discharge from the ear
- Odor around the ear
- Excess scratching, pawing or rubbing at the ears
- Redness in the ear canal
- Sensitivity or pain around the ears
- Ear swelling
- Masses around the ear area
HOW CAN I HELP PREVENT EAR INFECTIONS?
Regular ear cleanings are a great way to help keep your dog’s ears clear from disease and infection. To clean normal ears, choose a mild ear cleaner specifically designed to be used on pets. It’s generally best to avoid vinegar, alcohol, and hydrogen peroxide, which can irritate the skin of some dogs and be painful to an already inflamed ear canal.
