Many dog owners do not realise the importance of checking their dog’s ears and cleaning them, if needed. It is recommended that you check their ears once a week as part of their normal care routine so you can identify issues and tackle them before they cause any serious health problems for your dog. If you do not know how to clean dog ears or why it’s important, this page will tell you everything that you need to know.

Why Is It Important To Clean Your Dog’s Ears?

Most dogs only need to have their ears occasionally to deal with general dirt and bacteria. This cleaning routine is important because it helps to avoid a dog ear yeast infection, other bacterial infections, or ear mites. However, it is important that you do not clean their ears too often because this can lead to skin irritation or damage to the ear canal.

Dogs that like to swim a lot, dogs with large floppy ears, or dogs that have underlying skin conditions are more prone to problems in their ears, so you may need to clean their ears more often. 

When you are doing your weekly check of their ears, always look out for anything that is out of the ordinary. If their ears are very dirty, you should use a dog ear cleaner to clean their ears or administer ear drops for dogs.

How To Clean Dog Ears

Cleaning your dog’s ears is a simple process as long as you have everything that you need. Before you start, make sure that you have some damp cotton wool, a good quality dog ear cleaner and possibly some ear drops for dogs if they have been prescribed by the vet to deal with infections or skin conditions.

Start by lifting your dog’s ear and inspecting the inside. Some light brown wax is perfectly normal but if you notice pus or red or black discharge, that is a sign of infection so you will need to see the vet.

If everything appears healthy, you can start cleaning your dog’s ears. Use your damp cotton wool to gently wipe around the entrance to the ear canal and remove any dirt and debris. Next, take your dog ear cleaner and insert the applicator tip into their ear. The tip on a dog ear cleaner bottle is specifically designed so it will not cause damage to the inner ear but it’s important that you do not push it too far in. Once in, gently squeeze the bottle to administer the ear cleaner. You can help the dog ear cleaner disperse by massaging the base of the ear. Just be careful because your dog may shake its head and some of the cleaner can spray out. Finally, wipe away any excess cleaner from around the ear and you are done.

When you are cleaning your dog’s ears, it’s important that you use a good quality dog ear cleaner so you can be sure that it is effective, and it won’t cause any irritation. You should only use ear drops for dogs if they are recommended by the vet. 

It only takes 5 minutes to clean your dog’s ears, but it helps to prevent infection and skin irritation, so it’s a very important part of their care routine.
