How to Clean a Dog’s Ears

As pet owners, we know that keeping our dog’s ears clean is an important part of their care. If you are a new dog owner, you may not know how to clean a dog’s ears. But cleaning those ears can challenging if our dogs aren’t conditioned to accept ear cleaning, or we don’t feel comfortable doing it. Some dogs naturally have healthy, clean ears and may almost never need to have their ears cleaned, while other dogs require regular ear cleaning to prevent the buildup of dirt that can lead to ear infections. Dog breeds with long hanging ears, such as Basset Hounds and Cocker Spaniels, are among those with the highest risk of getting ear infections, but all breeds can develop them. Checking the health of your dog’s ears is something you should be doing on a regular basis. Your dog might enjoy having his ears rubbed when they are healthy, but if he pulls away from you they may be sore. So you can begin to assess their condition by gently massaging your dog’s ears.
