It's been too long for my two. Muffin started rubbing her ear on my hand last night. I got out the alcohol and Q tips. It seemed to perk her up a little. Cracker gets hers done this afternoon. Do you do your dogs ears on a regular basis?

Cracker is a little more squeamish than Muffin. I set the alcohol on the patio table to let the alcohol get up to ambient temperature. I did her ears while she was standing. She leaned into me and moaned. I need to do it more often.

Just did Jessie's yesterday 6 months old, I think its just good practice for floppy eared dogs. I think it feels good to them, like you say they lean into it and moan like it feels really good.

I use the stuff from Petco, squirt it in and rub it in then wipe with cotton ball far as I can without hurting her. They always come out kinda dirty.

Now if they stink, its time for the Vet to have a look for mites or infection. I know I'm not telling Bill anything new

She's going in for her Spay surgery and chip implant tomorrow ....fun frown

I like peroxide as it tends to loosen gunk better. It also doesn't tend to dry the ear out like alcohol does.

Muffin also got a bath tonight. She really likes to cut up after a bath.

Mine had the last of her puppy shots and the chip implant Sunday. Never would have known the way she pestered my beagle all afternoon. They cleaned her ears while there. She was looking at me crazy while they did it.

1/3 Peroxide
1/3 Apple Cider Vinegar
1/3 Witch Hazel (don't use alcohol)

Works like charm on my GSP's.

My old vet recommended 1/3 peroxide, 1/3 vinegar and 1/3 alchohol. I've been using that mix for about 8 years now. Works great.

What are you using to get the solution in the dog's ear?

I use the bottle cap and just pour it in there one ear at a time. I squeeze the ears a few times then swab it out.

Sports water bottle with pop up lid. I cup the ear with my hand, squirt some in, rub gently, let them shake, pat dry with paper towels.

Funny how dogs seem to really cut up after a good bath. My black lab also really gets going in the fall when we get that first cool morning. He comes in from his morning pee ready to wrestle until the house implodes. Something about that cool crisp air that really fires them up.
