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.
