Cleaning a dogs ears can be one of the more challenging things you can do when it comes to your companion animals health. Drawing on many, many years of experience, I will show you how to do this and do it well.
In this video, we're cleaning the ears of Big Tuna, our third Bully that frequently was mistaken for a large, white meatloaf by dinner guests. Big Tuna was basically a big lump of sugar. She just wanted to hang with you and was more of a stereotypical "lazy man" bully. She's a very good patient and so she provides a good illustration of what you need to do when cleaning your dogs ears.
Before you start, you'll need the following items:
Gauze (3 x 3 or 4 x 4 )
Ear cleaner (alcohol free so it's less irritating) Noah's Ark is a good brand
Swabs - WARNING: only use swabs if you're an experienced ear cleaner and
you know how to use them.
The video is pretty self-explanatory. If you have questions, feel free to contact me or comment on this blog with your questions.
I also recommend that you join our Youtube channel. We've got a number of educational videos coming up and you don't want to miss them! For instance, we're going to show you how to clean the ears of a dog that isn't as cooperative as Big Tuna was.
A note on the video. We've had some very astute keen eyed viewers who have pointed out that the bottle of ear cleaning fluid we're using is expired. We use that bottle and refill it so no worries on bad product.
