Cleaning your pet's ears is an excellent way to help reduce the chance of ear infections. Not only does it help keep your dog healthy but it also offers a way to detect problems early and therefore get treatment early. This can directly influence the prognosis and reduce the chances of hearing loss. Not to mention the early relief from any discomfort your dog may be experiencing. While you can do your part at home by keeping an eye on your dog's everyday behavior. As your dog's personal groomer we'll be sure to check for:
Discharge from the ear
Odor around the ear
Redness in the ear canal
Sensitivity or pain around the ears
Masses around the ear area
During your dog's private grooming, dirt and matted hair will be removed from around the ear canal and ear flap. In some dogs, excess hair may need to be gently removed from inside the ear canal; please do not do this yourself. It is advised that this be done by a professional dog groomer or veterinary clinic.
