Principle #3 – Gathering The Tools For The Job First
Put all your equipment together prior to starting the ear cleaning. Doing this is going to make the process of ear-cleaning go much more smooth. Keeping everything you need in a central location will be what makes for a positive experience as opposed to a bad one. Avoid using any products with insecticides. A groomers’ supply store is a perfect place to find otic solution.
Be sure to use sterile products like gauze, cotton swabs and sponges as a way to remove the solution. It’s pretty simple to clean the dog’s ears. Go slowly, so you don’t go too deeply into the ear. Just hold the dog’s head in a gentle way so the ear is easy to get to, usually while you sit down next to him or her. Put some of the ear solution into the ear and massage it into the ear canal. Wipe away the excess with a sponge or piece of sterile gauze that you can wrap around forceps or clamp if you’d like.
