    Re: Cleaning ears

    Yep, so true, we don't have to clean our Frenchies ears that often, and I usually just wipe them out with an unscented baby wipe. Very seldom do I use an ear cleaner on them.

    I was literally just wondering the other day if I was supposed to be cleaning Jax's ears or not. I usually will wipe them with a wipe after a bath and he gets them cleaned once a month when he goes to the "spa." He hasn't had any ear problems (knock on wood) so I guess I'm good for now!

    Re: Cleaning ears

    I don't really "clean" Bentley's ears. But after a bath I will stick a cotton ball down there and just wipe it toward the back of the ear. Seems to be doing the job. But I will have his ears checked occasionally to make sure no bad build-up is there.

    Re: Cleaning ears

    I spoke too soon and jinxed myself. Jax doesn't have an ear issue but last time he went to the "spa" they didn't clean his ears and yesterday I was looking in them and down in there, it looks like there is a quite a bit of wax and his ears look dirty. I've never "cleaned" them before so not sure if I should just leave it and let them get cleaned at his next "professional" bath or if I should try to do it myself. If I do it myself, what do I use and how do I do it?

    We have stuff from the vet, it's in a blue and white bottle with a squirt top, there's also a great brand on Amazon, the name escapes me but it's got like a million great reviews on there. We warm it up a little bit (test it like you would a baby bottle on your wrist) so it's not such a shock going in. Then you squirt it into their ears and massage all up and down their jawline. Let them shake their head. Then you go in with a cotton ball or pad and get any gunk that has surfaced. Hudson has horrible ear issues so this is a frequent struggle in our house!

    Re: Cleaning ears

    Every dog is different, I find. I had 2 pugs (so both had floppy ears, of course), and my male's were always dirty. My female? I never have to clean them. Maybe once in a blue moon if I notice her scratching them, but for the most part I never have to. Hers are fine! Who knows... Some dogs just produce more gunk than others.
