Hi everybody, I was told by the vet to clean Mo's ears out once a week because they are floppy ears and prone to infection. He hates it. I actually do it once a fortnight and it seems to be enough. He has had an ear infection once only. Recently though, I noticed him shaking his head so I have cleaned them again and I am keeping an eye on things.
My question is, how do you guys clean your dogs ears, one vet told me to flush the ears with a little ear cleaner and wipe out the canal with a cotton bud. But recently I have been told by a friend that her vet said that you should not clean out the ear canal, only above the ear canal. So I youtubed and sure enough the first demonstration I found said not to clean out the canal.
I don't want to do any damage to Mo. What do you guys do?
