How to you clean a dog’s ears?

Posted by Ally Cohen on

JULIA DONNELLY, DVM: It is important to remember that excessive ear cleaning can be damaging to the ear canal. Never use Q-tips or any instruments into the ear canal.
  • Apply cleanser to ear liberally.
  • Massage solution into ear canal by gently massaging the base of the ear.
  • With a cotton ball over your fingertip, wipe the accessible portion of the ear clean. Let your dog shake out any excess fluid and debris.
  • Clean base of the ear with a dry cotton ball.
  • Repeat if necessary.
