www.SevernRiverAH.com Tips and Tricks on cleaning ears for dogs by our veterinary technicians. Step 1: Gather materials for ear cleaning. You will need an ear cleaner recommended by your veterinarian, (We use Malacetic Otic Cleanser) cotton or gauze, gloves, and towel for the floor or table. Step 2: Soak your cotton or gauze with your pet safe ear cleaner and test a small area on your pet’s ear in case of an allergic reaction. Step 3: Once confirmed it is safe to use, lift the ear flap to expose the ear canal and place your cotton/gauze around your index finger and go deep down into the canal. Step 4:Squeeze around the base of the ear canal with your other hand to create a swooshing sound to break up debris deep in the ear canal. Step 5: Remove your finger from the ear canal while gliding your finger against the walls of the ear canal to remove debris. Step 6: Repeat as needed until your cotton/gauze is free of debris. Step 7: Use dry cotton/gauze to clean out any left over ear cleaner. Step 8: Allow your pet to shake their head to further remove any left over ear cleaner in the ear canal. Cease ear cleaning if your pet’s ears appear red, inflamed, irritated, or painful. Call your veterinarian to schedule an otic examination in case there is an infection that needs treatment.
