Hair in Ears

Most of what I've read about ear hair indicates that it should be pulled. My breeder said to pull it. My vet was adamant that it's better not to pull it, just to keep it from growing back into the ear. Well, over the weekend we noticed that Nico's hair seemed to be growing back into the ear, so my daughter pulled as much of it as she could. What do you do? What's the easiest way to pull the ear hair?

Well I had never had the ear hair problem ever with my girls. When I asked my groomer she said - oh no, leave it alone. Then along came Logan..... He had gotten the hair under his ears so badly matted that she had to shave him to the skin under his ears. DH said that he noticed Logan scratching his ears a lot. So I looked into his ears, and there was a big ball of hair, I tugged & it came right out. I think that Logan scratched at the ear hair and then caused his matts. I now check his ears regularly. I was actually shocked that he did not squeel, startle or yelp when I pulled it out, it was as if he never felt it at all.

My vet told me not to pull, unless there is a problem. He said he sees more problems from pulling the hair out. However, the hair inside the ear got matted on Shelby, and I just cut the mat out. It seems to be better now, and I keep track of it all the time.

Oh, I thought you were supposed to pull the hair out. Zoey has so much hair in and around her ear that it gets kind of guey. The groomers always pulled her ear hair out, so I have been too. I guess I should stop, huh?

I have known vets to be on either side of the fence. Jax came to me with an ear infection & he has TONS of hair in his ears. So i do thin it out somewhat. I do prefer less hair in there so i can see better.

I think that whe Radat is at the Vets Tomorrow that I'll ask them to check the hair in his ears and then trim it if needed.
