Natural Ear Cleaner For Dogs

July 4th, 2017

Are you searching for natural ear cleaner for dogs?

Nicci and I (and our dogs) spent two weekends in June at dog shows, Dog Fest, at Arley Hall in Cheshire, and Dogs Unleashed, at Bakewell in Derbyshire.
We had a great time, meeting our customers, introducing Vita Canis products to new people, cuddling dogs, and enjoying the weather. The new banner for our latest product, Ear Cleaner, drew lots of attention!

Many dogs suffer with ear problems

People were coming to our stand and telling us all about their dog’s ear problems. I couldn’t believe how many! Actually, I could because as a dog groomer, I see ear problems on a daily basis… but still, it was surprising just how many.
After Dog Fest Nicci suggested we should bring some cotton wool to the next show, Dogs Unleashed, and show people how to use our product, the Ear Cleaner. What a great idea!!

So I made a sign offering free ear cleaning and got loads of cotton wool. Over the weekend at Dogs Unleashed I cleaned hundreds of ears… small, big, flappy, hairy, stinky, pinky… you name it, I cleaned it! To my surprise, some people didn’t know they should check their dog’s ears; and often, if they did know, they didn’t know exactly what to do or were frightened to do it.


“What should we be looking for?” “I am scared to do it…” “He won’t let me do it…” “Help!!”

Here are some facts about a dog’s ear, what are we looking for when we check the ear and how to clean it:
Ear infections in dogs are most commonly caused by a range of factors, including bacteria, yeast, ear mites, excessive hair, moisture or wax, foreign bodies and allergies. Because the ear canal in dogs is mostly vertical (unlike the human ear canal, which is horizontal), it is easy for debris and moisture to be retained in the canal itself leading to problems.


If your dog shows sudden signs of:

Ear pain
Inflammation of the ear flap (redness)
Ear odour
Discharge
Continual head shaking
Drooping of the ear,
please have your veterinarian check it out. There may be an infection or it could even be that a foreign body is present causing the infection.
Methods of transmission of infection include direct penetration from the external environment, overgrowth of microflora in the ear itself, perhaps due to stress, hot weather or other factors: immunosuppression or injury, for example.
If there is no foreign body present in the ear and you wish to use a totally natural treatment, time to try Ear Cleaner

How to clean your dog’s ears with natural ear cleaner.

The best preventative care is regular checking and cleansing of the ear. Start from an early age so your puppy gets used to it. While playing, gently hold the ear, massage, turn over the ear flap…
If your dog has a lot of hair coming from the ear canal, gently pluck the hair. Or at least some of it, to help free flow of air to the ear. You can do this quite easily with your fingers. Gently but firmly hold a little bit of the hair growing inside the ear and pull. Do just a little bit at the time to avoid discomfort. There are also special ear powders that may help you in gripping the hair.
It is important to bring your dog along slowly so that he/she associates ear cleaning with something positive. Always have treats ready to offer each time your dog is well-behaved during the process.
Just like with human ears, you never want to use cotton buds because they can hurt your dog’s ears, instead use cotton wool or cotton pads.

How to use natural ear cleaner for dogs.

Shake the product well. Wet a cotton ball with Ear Cleaner and wipe the part of the ear that you can easily see, the inside of the outer flap. Then wet a new cotton ball to clean a little further into the inner ear. Make sure you use a new piece of cotton wool for each ear. Ideally, you want to do this about once a week to keep your dog’s ears free from infection and smelling sweet.

Happy ear cleaning!

What People Say...

When we got home from the hospital with our new arrival it was clear that Perri, one of our miniature poodles, maternal instincts kicked in and went into overdrive. She was immediately acting like a mother separated from her pups and just wanted to care for the ‘naked puppy’. She has a history of being so motherly, even to the point that she has produced milk for puppies that aren’t hers even before she had a litter and has mothered every type of animal she could. She was panting, pacing and unable to relax for long at all. She could whine for England!

We tried other herbal remedies we had at hand for a previous anxious dog and nothing worked at all. She stopped eating and stressed herself into overheating too. Her stress was starting to impact the other dogs and she just couldn’t unwind. No matter if we worked off her energy with a walk and she wasn’t even interested in her usual mind games or call games. We also couldn’t offer long-lasting treats and chews too often as they gave her an upset stomach.

As soon as the Calming Floral Spray arrived I gave the bed a spritz and put some on her coat and the change was instant. She just got on her bed and fell asleep. She stopped panting and barely whines now, started eating again and she only does a bit of whining if the baby cries. We have now been able to positively reinforce her calm behaviour. I honestly can’t recommend this enough to people.
