Caring for your dog's ears

Signs of ear infections in dogs include:

  • Unpleasant odour
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Signs of pain or discomfort when they are touched
  • Excessive discharge
  • Shaking or scratching at their ear, or hanging their head low to one side.

Preventing ear infections in dogs

Daily checking of your pooch’s ears is a helpful habit, as you’ll quickly notice any changes or obvious signs of infection. The regular use of a gentle dog ear cleaner that nurtures the ear canal and removes excess wax and debris is also recommended as a means of preventing infections – this can be done once a week in infection prone dogs.
