How to Clean Your Dog's Ears using Buchu

If you’ve seen your dog’s ears prick up when someone unwraps a food item in the room next door, you’ll know that dogs boast some extraordinary hearing.

Their great hearing is of course aided by the condition of their ears – healthy ears result in optimal hearing, while the deterioration of the ear canal can leave their ears irritated and itchy. Added to this, the shape of some dogs’ ears can make it difficult for your pup to rid his ears of trapped dirt and excess wax.

This is why cleaning your pup’s ears is an essential part of grooming and neglecting this step could lead to ear infections or increased chances of hearing loss.

How to Clean your dog's ears

Take a cotton ball and soak it in the ear cleaning solution.  Wipe the ears down on the outside and the inside.  Then soak another cotton ball and gently apply it into the inner ear area, but do not go into the ear canal further than your hands can touch.  The end result will be a wet ear, a few dirty cotton balls and a much happier dog.  Always consult your veterinarian should the ear become inflamed or ear shaking does not stop.
