How do I flush out my dog's ears?


Answer by  RunawayJim (964)

They make products that you squirt in the dog's ear and then press a cloth in to clean them out. This works best since you do not want to put anything in a dog's ear that wasn't meant to be there.

To clean the ears of a dog, DO NOT use sharp objects. Wrap a soft cloth or gauze swab, sterile water in adequate (type "Epiotic") and wipe gently. If there is discharge, yellowish discharge, blood or the dog is desperately scratching the ear, take it to the vet immediately.

I wouldn't recommend trying to flush an ear because of the chance that there is some small debris there that you would just end up pushing further into the ear. Go to a pet shop and look for ear cleaning kits that some with swabs and solution.

Your vet should be able to supply you with a cleanser, pet stores should also have some. Soak a bit of a cotton make-up removal pad and gently rub your dog's ear, from the outside working in. Be gentle, and if Rover decides he's had enough, then try again later.

Use ear cleaner especially for dogs. Fill the ear canal, rub the base of the ear for a few seconds and let the dog shake it out. Repeat for excessively dirty ears. By shaking his head the debris in the inner canal will work it's way out. Wipe the residue with clean gauze or a baby wipe.

Pouring anything into your dogs ears can be harmful. The best way is to use a cotton swap coated in mineral oil and gently swabbing clean the dirty areas.

Dogs ears should stay pretty clean on their own, but it is necessary to flush the ears at times, if there is extra dirt or ear wax. When flushing the dogs ears, gently fill the ear canal with a cleaning solution and then using a bulb syringe remove the liquid. Do not flush the ears too often.
