Honestly I have never cleaned Mags' ears - and she is almost 3 - and she has never ever had any sort of ear problems. When I take her to get professionally groomed (maybe 3 or 4 times a year - mostly just for her nails) they clean her ears for me but I've never done it - one of the perks of NOT CROPPING - all that crap doesn't get into their ears. My vet told me I didn't have to clean them myself as long as she was getting them cleaned every couple months by the groomer.Thor said:How often and what is everyone cleaning their dogs ears with? Currently, I clean use an ear wash by Halo and do it once a week. I heard just wiping the flaps with witch hazel is fine too.
Okay - the brand of the stuff I use is RXV Ear Cleansing Solution. It says it's formulated to deodorize, clean, dry, and acidify the ear canal. Like I said it's good stuff. I only paid like $8 at the vet for it, and it's a pretty big bottle. Hope this helps!apbtgurl26 said:My boxer has to have her ears cleaned at least once a week in the summer, and every other week in winter (more dirt gets in there in the summer). She's very prone to "yeast infections" in her ear because they're floppy. My pitbull has floppy ears too, but we've yet to have a problem with his. I use something I bought from our vet - not sure of the name - but I will add the info when I get home tonight...it works really well!
