Ear cleaning

Django is going to have his teeth cleaned at the end of the month and at that time, they will clean his ears as well. Ever since he had that terrible reaction to medication for his ears, it's very difficult to pull the hair out of his ears let alone clean them. I would love any recommendations of ear cleaning products. My thought is that if I can keep up with the cleaning they won't get as bad as they are right now.

Virbac Epiotic (they are on a newer version), this stuff is the bomb!!!!

My little demon, he hates me tweezing his ear canals too. he does like, when I take a tissue , and with my pinky, wipe out the ear canal. he really likes that for some reason.

I do have this at home. this is the solution that you literally put in their ears, swish things around and wipe, right?

I use this on whimsy. I buy it from my vet. So far she has always had healthy ears( knock wood) so I only use it once in a while. I feel fortunate that she has very little hair in her ears and I just leave it alone. The epiotic is good also.

Yup. I actually use Japanese Qtips (very small - Daiso is a Japanese dollar store, there might be one in your area), and use it to clean the outer portion of the ear.

you only need a few drops down the ear canal, then you need to massage it down the canal, then your dog will shake it's head, then I wipe the excess fluid from around the ear so it doesn't get all over the hair.

For hair in the ear, just try your fingers, to get him used to it. just a couple of pulls, then give him praise or a treat.

I use the same solution that Evelyn use on Whimsy. I apply it to Ralphie 's ears every time I give him a bath. It was recommended to me by his nanny from HRI. Love it, and it smells great. Never had to remove hair from his ears, and he is fine so far (knock on wood that I don't jinx it).
